1 What you goin't do when my Lord calls you?
What you goin't do when my Lord calls you?
What you goin't do when my Lord calls you?
Lord, I'm on my way.

Chorus:
Sinner, you can't stand the fire;
Sinner, you can't stand the fire,
Sinner, you can't stand the fire,
Lord, I'm on my way.

2 What you goin't do when the world's on fire?
What you goin't do when the world's on fire?
What you goin't do when the world's on fire?
Lord, I'm on my way. [Chorus]

3 My Lord says he's goin't rain down fire,
My Lord says he's goin't rain down fire,
My Lord says he's goin't rain down fire,
Lord, I'm on my way. [Chorus]

4 Run, sinner, run, the fire's behind you,
Run, sinner, run, the fire's behind you,
Run, sinner, run, the fire's behind you,
Lord, I'm on my way. [Chorus]
