1 The judgment day is coming, coming, coming,
The judgment day is coming;
Oh, that great day.

Chorus:
Let us take the wings of the morning
And fly away to Jesus;
Let us take the wings of the morning
And sound the jubilee.

2 I heard the trumpet sounding, sounding, sounding,
I heard the trumpet sounding,
On that great day.
[Chorus]

3 I saw the Judge descending, descending, descending,
I saw the Judge descending,
On that great day.
[Chorus]

4 I saw the dead arising, arising, arising,
I saw the dead arising,
On that great day.
[Chorus]

5 I heard the thunder rolling, rolling, rolling,
I heard the thunder rolling,
On that great day.
[Chorus]

6 I saw the lightning blazing, blazing, blazing,
I saw the lightning blazing,
On that great day.
[Chorus]

7 I heard the wicked wailing, wailing, wailing,
I heard the wicked wailing,
On that great day.

Chorus:
For they took not the wings of the morning
Nor flew away to Jesus;
For they took not the wings of the morning
Nor sang the jubilee.

8 I heard the righteous shouting, shouting, shouting,
I heard the righteous shouting,
On that great day.

Chorus:
For they took the wings of the morning
And flew away to Jesus;
For they took the wings of the morning,
And sang the jubilee.
