Hope’N’Anchor – The Gates of Eternity

1. Where the streets have no name
you get rewarded or blamed
you´re free or in flames
you sing or curse your own name
Where time has gone
and you´ll be judged to the bone
or welcome at home
where´s laughter or groan

2. Where Joy never ends
or where´s pain round the bend
no one will stand before
God´s glory and strength
When heaven and hell
and all the earth will bow down
before the Lamb – and the eldest
cast their golden crowns


The gates of eternity
choose well my friend choose well
You´re either saved by grace alone
or you´ll be damned in deepst hell

The gates of eternity
don´t accpet your own good deeds
the blood of Jesus Christ
is really all you need

3. When all wisdom fo men
seems like castles of sand
and all riches and gold
cannot save one single man´s soul
Some will shiver and shake
some give praise to the king
billions thrown in the lake
from every nation tounges will sing

4. When every question is answered
and every hunger is stilled
when every tear is dried
and all justice´s fulifilled
When the children who starved
are not hungry anymore
and where the rich man is thirsty
and regrets forever more

5. When technology´s forgotten
and war is no more
when the saved receive mercy
and the damned are alone
Where darkness is eternal
and pain undescribed
and memories infernal
and the soul never dies

6. Where the Lamb is the light
unseen things are in sight
unheard melodies cling
and all the heavens sing
Where judgement is just
by a judge whom you can triust
when many´ll be surprised
about hippocrites ´n lies

7. The gates of eternity are
just a little step away
they can suddenly open
every night and every day
The gates of eternity
are big enough for all
like in a second through all centuries
you hear their warning call

8. The Gates of Eternity
are long waiting for you
don´t believe it all too late
soon you´ll see that it´s true
May your heart be pitch black
and your sins red as the blood
come to the cross and get redeemed
by Jesus Christ the Son of God
