Lyrics

In the coming judgment day
When the heavens pass away,
That reveal the coming judge,
That shall call for you and me.

Refrain

What shall then our record be,
We are making day by day?
Brother, how is it with thee?
Are you ready for that day?
For the coming judgment day,
For the coming judgment day,
What shall then our record be,
At the coming judgment day?

Soon the harvest work is done,
And to judgment we must come,
To the judge of all the earth,
Seated on a great white throne.

Refrain

We are falling one by one,
Soon our journey here will end.
Can we say as Paul once said,
That a crown of life is won?
