"La Muerte No Es El Final" (Death Is Not The End) is a Christian song composed by the Spanish priest Cesáreo Gabaráin Azurmendi (1936–1991), after the death of Juan Pedro, a young organist in his church. Gabaráin composed hundreds of religious songs, some of them known worldwide such as "Pescador de Hombres".

The Spanish Armed Forces later adopted the song as a hymn to pay tribute to those who died in military service.

Cuando la pena nos alcanza
por el hermano perdido,
cuando el adiós dolorido
busca en la Fe su esperanza.

En Tu palabra confiamos
con la certeza que Tú
ya le has devuelto a la vida,
ya le has llevado a la luz.
Ya le has devuelto a la vida,
ya le has llevado a la luz.

When sorrow reaches us
over a fallen brother,
when a sorrowful farewell
looks for hope in Faith.

We trust Your word,
being certain that
You have brought him back to life,
that You have taken him to the light.
You have brought him back to life,
that You have taken him to the light.[citation needed]
