Oh, Death, Be Not Proud



Sincere condolences 

to the FENTY Family

on the death of their beloved 

Alfred

11/24/47 - 12/03/2014


Oh, Death, Be Not proud!



Oh, Death, be not proud!
You can't hold him forever!
The Lord Jesus Christ, He paid Alfred's sinner's price
And the day is coming soon, when his captivity is over
That Jesus Christ, himself, shall grandly shout:
Alfred, my child! AWAKE!


Oh, at that time, with a glad shout of victory
With body glorious, Alfred will immortal rise
With the Saints of God, and Christ
And with every Angel
In a cloudy train
They'll journey through the sky!


Alfred shall at the Pearly Gates
Receive his badge of honor
White stone, new name
Golden harp and yes, a crown
A victor's palm
A grand welcome home from his Jesus
All mortal combat ended
No tears, no sorrow, never again to say goodbye!


Our tears will fall
Right now, but just for a little season
We won't mourn o'er-long as those heathen do
Alfred died in the Lord
Yes, it was in Jesus' peace and safety
For there was no conflict between
His Master and himself!


We will comfort ourselves
With the peace that Jesus gives us
Knowing we'll meet e'er long
Never again to say goodbye! **

Rest easy, Dear One, until the resurrection!




1 Thessalonians 4: 13-17 KJV

13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning


them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which



have no hope




14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them


also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.




15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which


are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent


them which are asleep.




16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout,


with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God:


and the dead in Christ shall rise first:



17 then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together


with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we


ever be with the Lord.




18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
