1. All you gotta do is turn on the TV, hear what the newsmen say.
It's the very same thing we read in the scriptures, the end is on the way.
But I'm not worried and I'm not afraid 'cause I've got a promise from God.
Keep your eyes on the sky and in a blink of an eye, we'll be in heaven some eternal day.


Well, let me tell you I'm ready to go, I'm ready to go on home.
Because the things of this old world mean nothing to me.
I'm gonna walk on the streets of gold in a land where we'll never grow old.
I'm ready for God to take me on home.

2. Every time I read the newspaper things look pretty grim.
There's all kinds of wars and rumors for more. When will it all end?
But I'm not worried and I'm not afraid 'cause I know where I'm going.
In the twinkling of an eye He'll split the Eastern sky, and take us to the Promised Land.

CHORUS: twice, tag last line at the end.
