Today you’re here, tomorrow you’re gone;
Time keeps passing by.
From the first day forward in this world
You live until you die.
Lovers come and lovers go,
Time permits a kiss.
Only a moments time to spare
In such enchanted bliss.
You’re running here, you’re running there,
The rush will never stop.
The hand is turning ’round and ’round
On the face of every clock.
Much too soon the things you’ve planned
Will stare you in the face.
Will you ever reach the finish line?
Will you soon complete the race?
There’s not a chance for you must live
As long as God intended.
Time’s passing fast and we must run
Until this life has ended.
And then, what lies beyond the grave?
Another’s life desired?
Eternity will never end
In heaven or in fire!
Eternity can’t be explained
But try to do your best
To serve our God and do what’s right
To receive Eternal Rest.
