Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

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?
