Eugene M. Bartlett, Sr. (1895–1941)


This life will end some fu­ture day,
Another life will then be­gin;
Are you pre­pared for that event,
Just af­ter death—what then?


Just af­ter death—O! an­swer me,
Where will you spend eter­ni­ty?
When time on earth shall cease to be,
Just af­ter death—what then?

The saved will have eter­nal life,
And they will safe­ly en­ter in.
To share the glo­ries of the Lord,
Just after death—what then?


The lost will go in­to des­pair,
Their tor­ment there will then be­gin;
They’ll cry for mer­cy from the Lord,
Just af­ter death—what then?
