Before Him shall be gathered all nations: and He shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats.@Matthew 25:32

Will L. Thompson, in Highway Songs, by Edward E. Nickerson (Boston, Massachusetts: 1886) (🔊 pdf nwc).

There’s a great day coming,
A great day coming;
There’s a great day coming by and by,
When the saints and the sinners
Shall be parted right and left,
Are you ready for that day to come?

Refrain

Are you ready? Are you ready?
Are you ready for the judgment day?
Are you ready? Are you ready?
For the judgment day?

There’s a bright day coming,
A bright day coming;
There’s a bright day coming by and by.
But its brightness shall only come
To them that love the Lord.
Are you ready for that day to come?

Refrain

There’s a sad day coming,
A sad day coming;
There’s a sad day coming by and by,
When the sinner shall hear his doom:
Depart, I know you not!
Are you ready for that day to come?

Refrain
