Verse 1
I would not live forever
within this feeble frame
the sands of time will turn on me
and burden me with pain
Why would I face a thousand years 
and weakness only claim?
These brittle bones will sleep in death
And then be born again

Verse 2
I would not live forever

in this corrupted form
I know the ill inside my heart
desires to make a storm
I know if endless strength were mine 
I would not keep my place
I need the grave to check my pride
And lead me to his grace

Verse 3
I would not live forever

in this sin-saddened world
Where ocean loads of tears are shed
and flags of grief unfurled
I would not set my anchor here
I push through sorrow’s straits
Because I know across these waves
a land of joy awaits
