2 years gone

It's been 2 years since the passing of my Grandma.  This song gives me joy!!
Dying is not the end for the believer.  Death has been conquered by the shed blood of our Saviour!
To die is to live with Him for eternity!

It is not death to die
To leave this weary road
And join the saints who dwell on high
Who've found their home with God
It is not death to close
The eyes long dimmed by tears
And wake in joy before Your throne
Delivered from our fears

Oh Jesus, conquering the grave
Your precious blood has power to save
Those who trust in You
Will in Your mercy find
That it is not death to die

It is not death to fling
Aside this earthly dust
And rise with strong and noble wing
To live among the just
It is not death to hear
The key unlock the door
That sets us free from mortal years
To praise You evermore


  1. Your grandma was a very special lady, for sure! We are so glad we had the privilege to know her. The song has very touching words!!! How true that it is that it is not death to die! Thanks for sharing.

    Love you all

  2. This is really beautiful Alissa!! How fitting for the Christian who maybe facing their eternal destination. It truly brings things into perspective. I enjoyed all the songs we were able to share in singing with you all. I'm claiming the words to this piece, for when it is needed. I just love it.

    It is hard to believe 2 years have gone by so quickly. Then it also seems like Mom has been gone from us for such a long time. I miss her !!
    Love Mom
