Fear not Death's sting, there is no such thing.
Death is but the doorway to where life begins.
Fear not the valley, for it is not dark,
But filled with the light of the Eternal Son.
Lay down your cross, the battle is over ? victory won.
The reward is waiting, for each and everyone.
According to your deeds on earth,
Shall it unto you be done.
Lay not value on your earthly sum.
Rather, lay by riches
When you homeward come.
