The Antidote of death

The vital savour of His name
Restores our fainting breath;
Believing, we rejoice in Him,
The Antidote of death.

Isaac Watts (stanza 3 of "The Different Success of the Gospel", beginning "Christ and His cross is all our theme")

Amen, brother.

God gave Watts a way with words.

He certainly did. After reading this, it occured to me that God is also the antithesis of death, for there is no end with respect to God. Anything else which has, is, or ever will be, shall have an ending at some point.
