1 "Eternity! where?" It floats in the air;
Amid clamor or silence it ever is there!
The question so solemn "Eternity! where?"
The question so solemn "Eternity! where?"

2 "Eternity! where?" Oh! Eternity! where?
With redeemed ones in glory? or lost in despair?
'Tis one or the other "Eternity! where?"
'Tis one or the other "Eternity! where?"

3 "Eternity! where?" Oh! how can you share
The world's giddy pleasures, or heedlessly dare
Do aught till you settle "Eternity! where?"
Do aught till you settle "Eternity! where?"

4 "Eternity! where?" Oh! friend, have a care;
Soon God will no longer His judgment forbear;
This day may decide your "Eternity! where?"
This day may decide your "Eternity! where?"

5 "Eternity! where?" Oh! Eternity! where?
Friend, sleep not, nor take in the world any share,
Till you answer this question "Eternity! where?"
Till you answer this question "Eternity! where?"
