Chorus:
Everybody gonna pray on the very last day
Oh when they hear that bell a-ring the world away
Everybody gonna pray to the heavens on the judgement day.

Well you can sing about the great king David
And you can preach about the wisdom of Saul
But the judgement falls on all mankind
When the trumpet sounds the call.
All equal and the same
When the Lord He calls your name
Get ready, brother, for that day.

(Chorus)

Well one day soon all men will stand
His word will be heeded in all the land
Men shall know and men shall see,
We all are brothers and we all are free
Mankind was made of clay
Each of us in the very same way
Get ready, brother, for that day

(Chorus)

Oh well the law is given and the law is known,
A tale is told and the seed is sown,
From dust we came into dust we'll go,
You the know the Lord once told us so.
Each brother takes His hand,
Heed the meaning of the Lord's command
Get ready, brother, for that day.

(Chorus)
