Eternity Approaching


Eternity Approaching

The weary world awakens as another day dawns
To unexpected yet somehow unsurprising news
Racing inexorably towards eternity
This path foretold before our birth
And now we all must be prepared
Do not ignore the ripening vines
Men’s hearts afraid, tremors, roaring of the waves
The golden age of grace is ending soon

Fear not the times and put your trust in Him
 Speak truth to those who now are being deceived
For woe will come to those who love the dark
Believing they are wise in their own sight
Our goal is not to tickle ears but shine a light
So gather strength with peace that passes understanding
Train your gaze upon our Savior Jesus Christ
And know that all of this will pass, at any moment, 
for eternity is nigh
