Praise to you, O my Lord, for our Sister Death
and the death of the body from whom no one
Woe to those who die in mortal sin,
but blessed are they who are found walking by
your most holy will,
For the second death
shall have no power to do them any harm.
-St. Francis of Assisi
I Know That My Redeemer Lives
I know that my Redeemer lives, and on that final day of days, his voice shall bid me rise again: unending joy, unceasing praise!
This hope I cherish in my heart: to stand on earth, my flesh restored, and, not a stranger but a friend, behold my Savior and my Lord.
