Death and Life

Death and life, life and death;
mortal enemies, no common breath.
To breathe for both the one, the other,
’tis for Cain to claim, “I loved my brother.”
Both can’t live, not side-by-side;
death must kill or death must die.
Heed: the end’s been writ from sin’s first lie;
how grave to live with Death complied.
Draw your line while life is kind
and side against all Hell and find
Life Eternal died, yet lives,
and conquered, killing death to give
life through His death that all might gain—
all, that is, who bear the pain
of living, dying to self-filled breaths—
alive to Life and dead to death.
