when the book of life is read lyrics – hank williams

recorded by hank williams, sr.

capo: 4th fret/key: f#/play: d
[d] in lifes many battles that [g] you will have to [d] fight
just stay close to jesus and [e7] journey in his [a7] light
then [d] on that judgement morning [g] when all pain has [d] fled
youll stand in gods kingdom, when the [a7] book of life is [d] read.

[g] when the seals are broken and [d] names are read aloud
youll see many loved ones [e7] standin in the [a7] crowd
so [d] brother keep on prayin and [g] follow where youre [d] lead
youll stand in gods kingdom, when the [a7] book of life is [d] read.

all your dreams of heaven will come true on that day
when the sky shall open and this earth melt away
then all gods faithful children will raise up from the dead
united in gods kingdom, when the book of life is read.

what a happy feelin to know h*ll always care
and when our work is over heaven with him well share
theres be no pain or sorrow, no tears will eer be shed
when we stand there in gods kingdom and the book of life is read.
