1 Oh, what is your record, my brother,
Oh, what is your record I pray?
Will it do to be read by another,
Will it pass in the great judgment day?

Refrain:
Are you ready with your record?
For the coming judgment day?
Are you ready? Oh, my brother,
The summons soon you must obey.

2 A record you know you are making,
A record that with you will stay;
You can never get from it my brother,
Will it pass in the great judgment day? [Refrain]

3 A record that’s dark and condemning,
Will cause you both shame and dismay;
When the world shall be called to assemble,
At the bar of the great judgment day. [Refrain]

4 Your last act will soon be recorded,
The summons then you must obey;
You must meet ev’ry page of your hist’ry,
At the bar of the great judgment day. [Refrain]
