'Now body do not argue
and make uxcuses so
you lived a life with sin
so it's to the grave you go.
I told you once what Yeshua said
about all flesh and blood
now you cannot inherit heaven
the Kingdom of my God.
For the flesh does profit nothing
and to the grave it goes
to corrupt and be no more
an ending to life's woes.
Now the earthly man is first
filled mostly with sins leaven;
but the man in Christ comes next -
The second man from heaven.
And except a grain of wheat
die, it shall remain alone
for even wheat in death
for the new life does atone.

So body now you understand
that to the grave you go,
but I shall live in Christ
amen, for it is so'

1 Corinthians 15
