Time, Chance, and Eternity

From the Throne with Christ,
From the Citadels of Eternity,
I looked down on the shadows of Time
And was amazed at foolish humanity.
They fret and they fight,
They gamble and concede;
For Time dallies with Chance;
I sided with Eternity.

(Eccl.9:11; Matt.16:26; Col.3:1,2; Jn.6:27)
