And to me they made no sense –
Earthquakes and tsunami waves
Sending thousands to their graves.
Then they saw the divinity
Of Jesus Christ in eternity.
Volcanoes spewing ash and stones,
Burning liquid, fossil bones.
This old mount had majesty,
But its “awe” ceased violently.
Yes, the mountain’s old beauty
Could not compete with eternity.
War is everywhere around;
Soldiers, terrorists all abound.
Bringing death, sorrow, and strife
Sending misery to all life.
As Jesus heard their morbid cries,
Eternity flashed before their eyes.
Rebels rising in the east
Ridding the tyrannical beast.
Celebrations, song, and dance
Freed to make a new life’s chance.
When they witnessed Jesus’ glory,
It was a speck in eternity’s story
In another tragedy
Jesus died for you and me.
Shed his blood to cover sin
Giving folks new life within.
He gave life eternally
To those who worship truthfully.
Christ’s the answer for grief and woe -
Heaven to gain and love to know.
A miracle has taken place
When you meet Jesus face to face.
In times like these we must trust
Jesus Christ, Right and Just.
Eternity’s just a breath away;
Jesus breathed his last that day.
He gave up His sacred Spirit;
He wanted all the world to hear it.
Now He rests eternally,
Patiently, and lovingly.
It seems the world is vomiting
With earthquakes, wars, and everything.
A breath away from eternal life
No more sin; no more strife.
Worldly problems in God’s scope
Are trite in sight of eternal hope.
Jesus gave his last breath
Passed from human life through death.
Human history was made
Sin was conquered – people saved.
When you think of eternity,
Remember His gift joyfully.
