 Live beyond the grave

The grave is too small.

Verse 1

 Man’s stature, too big for his grave

Though the body was taken from the dust

Our endowment is limitless

Originated from the Eternal Father

Our stature is too big for the grave

Though our body may be dust

The grave is too small to contain it

God was there, but couldn’t stay.



Use all the Lord has given you

You must not die with them

Give all the Lord ask of you [My Sister]

He knows you can and you can

The world is waiting for you

There is no concert in the grave.


Verse 2

The Lord who gives is the Lord who takes.

You have no take on when he takes.

To whom much is given,

Much is also expected.

He is home waiting for you,

But, no, not in the grave

He has given the seed, your gifts

You must return home with the fruits


Verse 3 (Spoken)

Time is essence…

According to the Gospel of St John Chapter 21, Verse 25.

If all that the Lord did were to be written, the whole world will not contain the books. I mean the books that would be written.

Your entire time on earth not enough to exhaust your whole essence.

Friend, be your full version; beget your kind!

Pass on the baton, live beyond the grave!

Grave too small
