Comfort
Death: I fear thee not!
Shall I doubt God's plan,
That makes death the lot
Of each living man?

If through birth, I come
To an unknown place;
Surely, going home,
Is, no less, God's Grace

Born to serve, and die;
Opportunity!
Through death's door, I fly:
Immortality!
by William Gilmore Timberlake
