I Pray You Die

I pray you die before you die
I hope you truly learn to live
I pray that you will on God rely
To teach you to forgive
I cannot wait ‘til others
Have done just right by me
I must embrace sisters and brothers
If I want to live eternally
That means I must have death
In order to live life at its best
And before I draw my last breath
I must pass this final test
Have I learned to forgive, forget
Did I learn to forgive again
Or am standing on my rights yet
Waiting for the other to give in
Die to the hope of getting even
Go ahead and let go of past pain
Die to the thoughts of sweet revenge
Die to self, be born again

John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
