John 11:25 (NIV) – Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die;

I AM says the Lord
I AM the Resurrection and life
I AM the One who alone gives
Eternal life beyond earthly lives

As you look around and see
The rush to amass wealth, power
Do you question, do you wonder
Is this all life is meant to be?

As crowds look for heroes
And follow the gurus and weirdos
Do you question, do you wonder
Is this what life is meant to be?

As you rush headlong each day
A task to next, no time for another
Do you question, do you wonder
Is this all life is meant to be?

I AM says the Lord
I AM the Resurrection and life
I AM the only One, who in the strife
Gives purpose, who lead to everlasting life

So choose to walk with Me, says He
I long to direct and guide thee
Where peace and joy yours will be
And life abundant, found only in Me

And when life’s journey is done
And over the Jordan, you come
I will be there, waiting to embrace thee
In My everlasting arms, eternally
