Eternity

I had opportunity to talk with an unbelieving man this evening. When confronted with eternity in heaven or hell, he said, “Well, that’s the chance I’ll have to take.” Our conversation reminded me of this hymn from our hymnal

Where will you spend eternity?
This question comes to you and me;
Tell me, what shall your answer be?
Where will you spend eternity?

Refrain:
Eternity! Eternity!
Where will you spend eternity?

Many are choosing Christ today,
Turning from all their sins away;
Heav’n shall their blessed portion be—
Where will you spend eternity?

Some leave the straight and narrow way,
Going the downward road today,
Sad will their final ending be—
Lost throughout all eternity!

Turn, and believe this very hour;
Trust in the Saviour’s grace and pow’r;
Then shall your joyous answer be,
Saved throughout eternity!

Elisha A. Hoffman, 1839-1929
