Life, Be Not Proud / W.T. Sharpe, 1987

Life, be not proud.
One waking moment, then we sleep
And life shall be no more Life, thou shalt go down to the deep.

Jesus is dead.
I wish you'd get this through your head.
If he could be here right now, He'd agree with what I've said.

Oh, how I wish that I could make you see -
But then, where would you be?
You'd be like me.

Oh, how I wish that I could make you see -
But then, where would you be?

Oh, how I wish that I could make you see Death, Thou art King,
And of Thy praises I will sing.
Other gods come and go, But you forever rule all things.
