Heaven and earth will pass away.@Matthew 24:35

James B. Pennington, in Songs of Redeeming Love, by J. H. Ruebush et al. (Dayton, Virginia: The Ruebush-Kieffer Company, 1915), number 40 (🔊 pdf nwc).

In God’s Word it is recorded
That this world will not endure;
Then while time is yet afforded
Make your hope of Heaven sure;
For the stars, before the morning,
From their orbits may be hurled,
And the moon may send a warning
That tonight will end the world.

Refrain

If tonight should end the world,
If tonight should end the world,
Would your soul adrift be driven?
Or would you set sail for Heaven,
If tonight should end the world?

O’er this question do you ponder,
As the days pass swiftly by?
Have you gained an interest yonder,
Where the soul will never die?
If the last trump should be sounded,
And the blood stained banner furled,
Would it bring you grief unbounded
If tonight should end the world?

Refrain

See the hands once torn and bleeding
On the cross of Calvary,
Reaching out with gentle pleading;
Oh, poor sinner, ’tis for thee;
Come, accept this great salvation,
Ere to judgment you are hurled;
Slight you not this invitation,
For tonight may end the world.

Refrain
