Death and Eternity

Representative Text

1 Coming when the day is bright,
Coming in the silent night,
Coming at the morning light,
Coming, coming, death and eternity.

2 Coming to the gay and proud,
Coming with a snow-white shroud,
Coming to the gray head bowed,
Coming, coming, death and eternity.

3 Coming with unhindered sway,
Coming ev'ry fleeting day,
Coming to the young and gay,
Coming, coming, death and eternity.

4 Coming to the sinful one,
Coming when our life is done,
Gath'ring to the judgment throne,
Coming, coming, death and eternity.
