No Depression In Heaven


For fear the [E]hearts of men are failing,

for these are [A]latter days we [E]know.

The Great Depression now is spreading,

God's word dec[B7]lared it would be [E]so.


I'm going [E]where there's no depression,

to the lovely [A]land that's free from [E]care.

I'll leave this world of toil and trouble,

my home's in [B7]Heaven, I'm going [E]there.


In that bright land, there'll be no hunger,

no orphan children cryin' for bread,

no weeping widows, toil or struggle,

no shrouds, no coffins, and no death.    + CHORUS


This dark hour of midnight nearing,

tribulation time will come.

The storm will hurl the midnight fears,

and sweep lost millions to their doom.    + CHORUS
