Eternity's Song

Story

Two years after losing my Dad my mother was dying.  When we thought she was stable I flew across the country, knowing the end was at least fairly near.  My whole life was playing in my mind and I started to think about the perspective of time as we know it.  That led me to thinking about how little we know it, which led to this song.

Lyrics

We’ve all heard stories from someone we knew

Describing a moment that they had gone through

When everything had changed in the blink of an eye

Some laugh as they tell it, some break down and cry

Because all that they have or all that is gone

Was decided in less time than one beat of this song

 

When I was a young boy I heard my Dad say

How I understood time would change some day

He said the older he got the shorter life seemed

And the time that is lost cannot be redeemed

I remember the moment but soon it was gone

It was less than a beat of my life’s young song

 

Like one piece of sand on the ocean floor

This life is just a fragment of a whole lot more

In the blink of an eye it will all be gone

It’s less than one beat of eternity’s song

 

I cannot begin to comprehend

The concept of time without an end

Or that heaven awaits me when this life is done

My passage confirmed by the gift of The Son

Let me use my time wisely before it is gone

Like a beat you heard once back when I started this song

 

Like one piece of sand on the ocean floor

This life is just a fragment of a whole lot more

In the blink of an eye it will all be gone

It’s less than one beat of eternity’s song
