Kenneth Warren Cox's War Memorials
I am the resurrection and the Life, Saith the Lord:
He that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet
shall he live:
and whosoever liveth and believeth in
me shall never die.
I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall
stand at the latter day upon the earth:
and though his body be destroyed, yet shall I see GOD:
whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and
not as a stranger.
We brought nothing into this world, and it is certain
we can carry nothing out.
The LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be
the name of the LORD. AMEN
