51. Eternity! Where? It Floats in the Air

4-11s.
1
Eternity! Where? It floats in the air—
 
Amid clamor or silence, it ever is there.
 
Eternity! Where? Oh, Eternity! Where?
 
The question so solemn—Eternity! Where?
2
Eternity! Where? Eternity! Where?
 
With saved ones in glory, or the lost in despair?
 
Eternity! Where? Oh, Eternity! Where?
 
With one or the other—Eternity! Where?
3
Eternity! Where? Is aught worth a care?
 
Friend, oh, shall we—oh, can we e'en venture to dare,
 
In life that is passing as mist in the air,
 
Do aught till we settle Eternity—where?
4
Eternity! Where? Oh, friend, have a care!
 
For soon God will no longer His judgment forbear.
 
Eternity! Where? Oh, Eternity! Where?
 
This night may decide your Eternity—where?
5
Eternity! Where? Eternity! Where?
 
Soon the Saviour will come for His own in the air;
 
Then sleep not, nor take in the world any share
 
Till answered this question—Eternity! Where?
