What matters is eternity

Sheet music

  1. What matters is eternity.
    In this life we need suffering.
    Above there is no grief and woe
    for those who suffer here below.
    So persevere.
  2. What matters is eternity,
    so bear all sorrow willingly.
    The crown awaits the souls above
    who kiss their crosses here in love.
    So persevere.
  3. What matters is eternity.
    There time will ever timeless be.
    With Christ you’ll be united then,
    and you will never weep again.
    So persevere.
  4. Look forward to eternity.
    Transformed will be all suffering.
    “Now I’m transfigured,” you will sing;
    “This is the gain from suffering!
    The crown is mine.”
