“The wages of sin is death,
but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Romans 6:23

Death, be not proud, though some have called thee 
Mighty and dreadful, for thou art not so; 
For those whom thou think’st thou dost overthrow 
Die not, poor Death, nor yet canst thou kill me…
One short sleep past, we wake eternally,
And death shall be no more: Death, thou shalt die. 

John Donne, 17th century
