What an awful day (repeat)
When the judgement comes, (repeat)
And the sinners hear (repeat)
Their eternal doom, (repeat)
At the sad decree (repeat)
They'll depart for aye, (repeat)
Into endless woe (repeat)
And gloomless woe and gloom.
Chorus:
I'm paying now (repeat)
The penalty, (repeat)
The unredeemed (that the unredeemed)
Must ever pay; (repeat)
Though for help I cry (repeat)
It's now in vain, (repeat)
For alas I'm doomed (repeat)
For aye (I'm doomed for aye).
If I could recall (repeat)
All the years now gone (repeat)
For my Savior's cause, (repeat)
I would spend each one; (repeat)
But they ne'er again (repeat)
Can to me return, (repeat)
And the task is left, and my task
Is left undone (it's left undone).
Chorus:
Oh I realize (repeat)
But alas too late (repeat)
What a dark mistake (repeat)
All my life has been, (repeat)
I refused his live (repeat)
With a various heart, (repeat)
And I must pay (repeat)
The price of sin (repeat).
Chorus:
