I'll Soon Be Gone
Old Gospel Song
1. We're living in perilous times, each day brings new distress
But God has told us in His word to pray and do our best,
To keep our lamps all trimmed and bright, our wedding garments on.
And something moving in my soul says, "Child, you'll soon be gone."
I'll soon be gone from this old world below
To Heaven's throne, eternal joys to know.
So without fear, I'll wait to hear the angel trumpet's tone,
And on that day I'll soar away. Oh yes, I'll soon be gone.
2. Well, soon the crumbling works of men must all be counted loss
And those who built upon the sand must pay the awful cost.
So why not kneel and pray today, the Spirit leads you on.
Then, with the saved you too can say, "Thank God, I'll soon be gone!"
