1 The time is swiftly passing onward,
You soon will reach the final end;
And then your life’s work will be over,
Eternity will then begin!

Refrain:
Eternity, eternity,
How will it be in eternity?
Eternity, eternity,
How will it be in eternity?

2 How sad ‘twill be to go to judgment,
And not be ready for that day;
And hear the words of condemnation,
“For e’er depart from me away!” [Refrain]

3 When at the final judgment standing,
How wad ‘twill be to know at last;
Your soul is lost and wreck’d forever,
The chance for life is ever past. [Refrain]

4 What glory it would be forever,
To hear the Saviour’s welcome voice;
“Well done, thou good and faithful servant,
For all eternity rejoice.” [Refrain]
