What a day for great rejoicing and to dance and sing and shout,
When your name is put on de golden book;
And you know de gates of Heaven ain't a gwine to shet you out,
If your name is put on de golden book.
Den hurry up you sinners dat's lagging way behind,
Or else some day you'se gwine to wake and den sure yon're to find
Dat It's just a little bit too late-to de gospel you've been blind,
And your name is not upon de golden book.

Ain't my name dere, written neater?
Wipe your spec's and take a look!
Can't you see it Uncle Peter?
Written on de golden book!

You should act upright and honest, do de best just what you can,
If you want your name upon de golden book;
Or some day you'll be a wishing dat you'd been a better man,
If your name is not upon de golden book.
Break off from all your sins, de good cause go a yellin',
Stop stealing little chickens, keep away from watermelon'.
If you don't stop, what will happen? why dere ain't no way of tellin',
But your name won't be upon de golden book.-Chorus.
