The Agony of Life Is Worse Than Death

The agony of life is worse than death,
for in death we gain freedom.
In dying our victory is won
for there is pleasure in the absence of breath.

To lose your spouse is on your left;
on your right is your lifeless son.
The agony of life is worse than death,
For in death we gain freedom.

For Jesus came his life bereft,
He suffered death to bring the kingdom.
To go and join him brings resurrection,
and suffering for them we upward lift.
The agony of life is worse than death,
for in death we gain freedom.
