HYMN CCXXXVIII.

8.8.8.8

James Montgomery

For ever with the Lord.

Eternity! Eternity!

That boundless, soundless, tideless, sea,

Of mysteries the mystery,

What is Eternity to me?

Infinite bliss or misery,

Woe past, woe present, woe to be;

The fulness of felicity;

These are Eternity to me.

Two voices from Eternity!

A voice from heaven comes down to me,

A voice from bell breaks dolefully,

"Life, Death, O Man! are offer'd thee."

The abyss is moved; even Wrath cries "Flee!"

The height expands, and Love cries "See

What God hath here prepared for thee;

Choose thou thine own Eternity!"
