Written to Stay

Upon the golden seashore sand
   I wrote my name one day;
The waves came in and when they left
   My name had passed away.

Upon the shifting sands of time
   Men write their names today,
But when eternal years roll in
   Their names will pass away.

Upon the spotless Book of Life
   God wrote my name one day;
Eternal years can never take
   That God-penned name away.

My name is there for ever
   Through all God’s endless day;
For He who died to write it there
   Has put it there to stay.
