Let the Dead Bury the Dead

Luke 9:59-60 Then He said to another, "Follow me." But he said, "Lord let me first go and bury my father." Jesus said to him, "Let the dead bury their own dead but you go and preach the kingdom of God."


What's dead is dead 

What's alive is alive

If we stick with the dead 

We will never survive 


Remember His Word

Let the dead bury the dead

Some have not heard

What Jesus has said 


In following the Lord

We must move ahead 

We must leave behind

The things that are dead


Into the unknown 

We will be led

To forsake all things

Even what is dead 


For God's written word 

It is heavenly bread 

Hold onto His truth

And what you have read


Look forward with faith 

Depart the past that is dead

Leave each disappointment 

Embracing joy instead 


By the light of the world 

We will be led

And those rays within us

They must be spread


We cannot be tripped up

Or even be misled

To stay with the stagnant 

Or dance with the dead 


Into God's future plans 

All of us must dive

But if we cling to the dead

We will never thrive
