Representative Text

1 Away from Jesus, away from God,
Straying afar from the path He trod;
No tho’t of Christ, no time for pray’r,
Death drawing nearer, eternity, where?

Refrain:
Shall it be joy in the ages to come,
Or shall it be endless despair?
Light everlasting, or darkness and gloom,
Eternity, eternity, where?

2 Away from Jesus, no rest or peace,
No true repentance, from sin no release,
Nearer the end, no light shines there,
No one to guide you, eternity, where? [Refrain]

3 Away from Mercy, the Judgment near,
Hopeless and trembling with doubt or fear,
Too late to accept His love and care,
“Guilty” the verdict, eternity, where? [Refrain]
