Entering Eternity
He has finished life's course,
In this period called time.
God has called your loved one home
To dwell in that fairest clime -
Life's race was run with courage
By this man, respected by all -
And he ansered, "It is finished,"
When he heard God's parting call.
Parting from this lief's challenge
The challenge he faced and won -
Now to be in blessed eternity,
With the Savior, God's Own Son.
Amen. . .
