I Want A Clear Record

(G) My record started from the cradle,
mother she held me close to her breast,
I know she (C) prayed for God to (G) keep me,
before I grew up she was at rest.

I want a clear (C) record when I come to the (G) judgement,
when the Lord smiles at me, "My son well done"
when that big (C) book of life is (G) opened,
I know mother's prayers they must have been true.

G) Now friends if you want your record to be spotless,
when the heavens roll back what will you do,
will your record be (C) claimed in His mansion for - (G) e - ver,
or will it be bad, oh brothers, pray through.
