Where Shall I Be

 

[A]Judgement day is drawing nigh

[D]Where shall I [A]be

[A]When God the work of men shall cry

[E]Where shall I [A]be

[A]When east and west the fire will roll

[D]Where shall I [A]be

[A]How will it be with my poor soul

[E]Where shall I [A]be

 

[A]Oh where shall I be when the [D]first trumpet [A]sounds

[A]Oh where shall I be when it [E]sounds so loud

When it [A]sounds so loud as to [D]wake up the [A]dead

[A]Oh where shall I [E]be when it [A]sounds

 

 

When wicked men its wrath shall see

Where shall I be

And to the rocks and mountains flee

Where shall I be

And hills and mountains wear away

Where shall I be

And all the work of men decay

Where shall I be

 

When the savior reigns from shore to shore

When God's angry presence roars

 

Oh I'll be sleeping in my grave when the first trumpet sounds

Oh I'll be sleeping in my grave when it sounds so loud

When it sounds so loud as to wake up the dead

Oh I'll be sleeping in my grave when it sounds
