This world is passing; soon ’twill all be o’er.
The circumstances of this present life
Are all forgotten once the eternal door
Is reached, and man is done with selfish strife.
Therefore let us be governed by the goal;
Not influenced by things that have an end.
Our faith be to the saving of the soul;
To God’s decree our stubborn natures bend.
Thus shall we realize that rest of heart
Found by the Saviour in His pathway here,
With whom in heaven is our eternal part,
Where glory crowns that stainless, deathless sphere.
