The time now ain't long; when the Saviour will come Then you'll be judged; by the deeds you have done On that judgement day; you'll weep and you'll cry When the Pale Horse and his rider goes by? When that trumpet sounds; on the sinners below Not even the angels; in heaven will know Then's when you'll wish; you had Jesus nigh When the Pale Horse and his rider goes by? Won't you redeem; your poor wicked soul You can't pay your way; with Silver and Gold If you're not saved; you'll be lost in the night When the Pale Horse and his rider goes by?Home
