Sound Samples

When death cuts asunder
That which we call death is not death
The lap of eternity
O lovely heaven!
All loves excelling
He was most lovely
Christ's matchless love
In the primrose of my days
I give to thee eternal life
Christ's blood is heaven's key
Run sweet babe
If this be dying
Death is my best friend
We shall meet in comfort at our journey's end
The way to heaven
Beyond the movable heavens
Heavenly death
