Representative Text

1 Eternity! Eternity!
When day and night shall cease to be,
And time is swallowed up in thee,
How long, how long, eternity!

Eternity! Eternity!
Dread day of death and doom to be;
Thy warning words my soul would flee—
Prepare to meet eternity!

2 Eternity! Eternity!
The Judgment shall thy witness be,
When God shall fix the just decree
To stand thro’ all eternity. [Refrain]

3 Eternity! Eternity!
When saved or lost my soul shall be;
Lord, help me now my guilt to flee,
And help me for eternity. [Refrain]

4 Eternity! Eternity!
Thy terrors turn to victory,
For Christ from sin hath set me free,
And saves for all eternity.

Eternity! Eternity!
Thro’ Christ I find the victory;
He saves me now and sets me free,
Praise Him for all eternity!
