"O Death" as written by and John Reedy....
What is this that I can't see
With icy hands taking hold on me?
I am Death, no-one can tell
I'll open the doors to Heaven or Hell

O Death
O Death
Please spare me over just another year

I'll fix your feet so you can't walk
I'll lock your jaw so you cannot talk
I'll close your eyes so you can't see
This very hour come and go with me

O Death, someone would say
Couldn't you call some other day?
God's children prayed, the preacher preached
Time and mercy are out of your reach

O Death
O Death
Please spare me over just another year

My mother come to my bed
Placed a cold towel upon my head
My head is warm, my feet are cold
Death is moving upon my soul

O Death
O Death
Please spare me over just another year

O Death, please consider my age
Please don't take me at this stage
My wealth is all at your command
If you will move your icy hand

O Death
O Death
Please spare me over just another year

O Death
O Death
Please spare me over just another year
