Death Shall Not Have This

 

death shall not have this

it cannot!

death cannot ever have this

though it struggle fierce and strong

death shall not have this

 

this is ours

 

this love

though death took you

death does not have you

God has you

and I can still love you

 

this is ours

 

this grief

though real

is by joyful hope assuaged

death cannot destroy us

has itself been destroyed

 

this is ours

 

this joy

this hope filled

God-founded joy

it is ours

it is forever ours

 

though death has taken you

death does not have you

death cannot have what is God's

you are who you were

my great gift of God

 

though death assault

though death terrible and fierce assault

it cannot have

it cannot ever have

what is Gods

 

this is ours

 

we are His

 


Death Shall Not Have This
