Printable scores: Sibelius
1 Time onward flows like a river vast,
While age on age it has borne to the sea;
And down this stream we have come at last,
To see time end in eternity.
Will you dwell with Christ in eternity?
2 What is this life but a fleeting day?
Soon death will come with a stern decree;
Then one by one we must pass away,
And change from time to eternity. [Refrain]
3 A dial true is the Book divine,
Its hands approach with a certainty
The tolling point in the death of time,
The solemn change to eternity. [Refrain]
4 Oh, joyful day to the faithful soul
Who walks with Christ in His purity!
Life’s battle fought and the vict’ry won,
He shouts from time to eternity. [Refrain]
