ETERNITY




O Thou eternal, glorious Lord,
Thy gracious presence now afford:
To all our souls thine influence bring,
While of eternity We sing!


Eternity! stupendous theme!
Compar’d herewith our life’s a dream;
Eternity! 0 awful sound,
'A deep where all our thoughts are drown'd.'


Eternity! the dread abode
And habitation of our God!
His glory fills the vast expanse,
Beyond the reach of mortal sense.


But an eternity there is
Of dreadful woe, or joyful bliss:
And, swift as time fulfils its round,
We to eternity are bound.


What countless millions of mankind
Have left this fleeting world behind;
They‘re gone; but where?—ah! stop and see
Gone to a long eternity.


And is eternity so near?
And must we very soon be there?
Sinner—ah! whither wilt thou flee,
Or how avoid eternity!


Canst thou forever hear to dwell
In all the fi'ry deeps of hell;
And is death nothing then to thee
Death, and a dread eternity.


Ye gracious souls, with joy look up;
In Christ rejoice, your glorious hope;
This everlasting bliss secures;
God and eternity are yours.
