Where Shall I Spend My Eternity?

Full Text

1. Where shall I spend my eternity?
Where shall I spend my eternity?
Down in the region of dark despair,
Happiness, pleasure I ne'er can share,
Banish'd forever in mis'ry there,
To all eternity, eternity?

Refrain:
Lost, lost,—awful doom!
I must die, and oh, how soon!
Help, Lord, break this spell;
I must decide now for heav'n or hell.

2. Where shall I spend my eternity?
Where shall I spend my eternity?
Down in the flames of an endless hell,
Forced by a sinful life there to dwell,
Stubborn, refusing Christ, have I fell
To all eternity, eternity?

3. Where shall I spend my eternity?
Where shall I spend my eternity?
Far from that heavenly home so fair,
Far from the joys that are over there,
Far from the saints that have gone to share
A sweet eternity, eternity?

4. Where shall I spend my eternity?
Where shall I spend my eternity?
Where there can never a prayer be heard,
A sermon, a song, or a holy word,
The voice of a seraph, a saint, a bird,
To all eternity, eternity?
