Gale Acuff - Nobody wants to die I tell my Sun

-day School teacher but she says no, I'm wrong,

many people do and in some cases

that's acceptable because they mean that

they want to go to Heaven to see God

and dwell with Him eternally and that

can't be too bad as long as they don't kill

themselves but I don't want to die even

but to pass God's judgment and live with Him

forever but she said Be not afraid

like she was speaking like an angel in

the Bible somewhere, I forget, and told

her so. Then she said I'm dead already.
