The day will soon be coming
To stand before the Lord
God will hold the Book of Life
Where all the names are stored.
Look into the Saviourís face
Stand on holy ground
Kneel before the King of Kings
Pray your name is found.
The time is nigh, itís drawing near
Tisí closer than you think
Eternal life with God above
Youíll either rise or sink.
God doesnít care Ďbout bank accounts
Or gems of pearl and jade
Your style of home, the car you drive
The money that youíve made.
Heís not concerned with age or height
The color of your hair
The number of the friends you have
The brand of clothes you wear.
Heíll ask you if you spoke His name
Thought of Him each day
Knew He gave His life for you
Took the time to pray.
Heíll know about your closest friends
About the books youíve read
The kind of thoughts that filled your mind
On what your spirit fed.
Heíll take a look inside your soul
Heíll go beyond your pride
Your sins will be as crimson red
Thereís nothing you can hide.
For once youíve stood before the Lord
Heíll see through every crack
And if you were to die today
There is no turning back.
Youíll gaze into His crystal eyes
He knows the things you did
Thereís nothing you can keep from Him
Your secret thoughts arenít hid.
So before you meet the Lord
You better make it right
Start by getting on your knees
Kneel down to Him tonight.
Get rid of all your worldly ways
Theyíll just lead you astray
Find time to walk with Jesus
The Truth, the Light, the Way.
Iím telling you, itís not too late
Godís waiting up above
To add you to His Book of Life
In Heaven up above.
When your life on earth is over
Heíll take one final look
When the roll is called up yonder
Will your name be in ďThe Book.Ē
