The Book Again
At the great white throne judgment, when you
stand before the King.
When the book of life is opened and your
name cannot be seen.
You'll look Jesus in the eye as tears begin
Search the pages, and the names, please
check them all.
Lord you know I asked forgiveness of my sins
so long ago.
My mom and dad they loved you and I was
baptized too you know.
My name must be written there It must be in
Search the pages one more time, please Lord,
take another look.
I know the word said just a few, there'd be
to enter in.
And maybe the path I traveled on was wide,
and filled with sin.
And though I traveled on that path I never
did join in
I just stood along the side lines as others
Won't you search just one more time before
you turn me away.
I told my Pastor I needed more, but he said
I was okay.
If you don't heed that still small voice but
listen to a man.
One day you'll stand before the King, and He
won't take your hand.
Oh sinner hear me when I say, search your
heart and take a stand.
So you won't have to tell the Lord, please
search the book again.
