Awake, awake, oh, my soul!
For I shall come to claim thee.
Thy body shall no longer grow old,
For I am called Eternity.
Keep thy soul prepared for me,
Pure and undefiled before God,
For when they lay thee beneath the sod,
With me, ye shall spend Eternity.
Oh, soul, where shall it be?
For there are two places thou canst go,
Heaven above or Hell below.
Whatever your choice, it's still with me.
As ye have lived, so shall ye die.
Awake, oh, soul, to my cry!
Once made, the choice forever shall be,
For I am called Eternity.

(Submitted to me 2/08 by Nellie's daughter asking to help her find a "home" for this poem. It will truly bless Nellie and her daughter if you leave your kind comments that I can share with them. I pray Nellie's poem brings many hearts to Christ.)

I like the personification of ETERNITY. The voice is loud and clear. Each in our time we shall meet ETERNITY face to face, for we shall be part of it, experiencing it. Thanks for sharing....Helen
