LIFE TOO SHORT

Life too short but for the truth
Who can take a thing like that?
Want to hear it rough or smooth?
Even an approximate?

Truth revealed will never hide
Though you turn your eyes away
Lying is like homicide
The bleeding corpse will yet betray

Truthful Christ the sacrifice
Alive not once but living twice
As testified by those who met
Him risen as we meet Him yet
