Words & music by Steve Thorngate

lyrics

Burn to ash.
Burn to ash.
All we make and all we do will
Burn to ash.

Fade to dust.
Fade to dust.
All we love and all we are will
Fade to dust.

Buried seed.
Buried seed.
Ash and dust bring forth new life—
They feed the buried seed.
Still,

We will end.
We will end.
Flesh and bones keep growing older:
We will end.

Rise again.
Rise again.
God, who always loves our bodies,
Can raise them again.
Still.

Burn to ash.
Burn to ash.
Can our hope look past our dying?
Burn to ash.
