Daniel O'Donnell – Standing Room Only lyrics

Standing room only
Not even room to kneel and pray
Standing room only
On the Judgement Day.

Last night I have an awful dream
That the end of time had come
The trumpet had been sounded
And life on earth has done.

An angel stood, one foot on land
The other foot on sea
And as I tried to kneel and pray
A voice said unto me.

There's standing room only
It's too late now to pray
There's standing room only
This is the Judgement Day.

People filled each church and churchyard
Just as far as I could see
I heard the pityful cry for mercy
And then I realized it was me.

I saw the Saviour did appear
As he split the eastern sky
I saw tears of joy on a Christian's face
And I heard the sinners cry.

And as I tried to touch his hand
With one last people plea
I cried again have mercy
Have mercy Lord, on me.

I saw a tear come to his eye
As he turned my soul away
I didn't know him yesterday
And he knew me not today.

The earth was burning all around
The world went up in smoke
And as the flames came off me
Thank God I awoke.

Then I got out of bed
And I got down on my knees
And you should've heard me pray
For in my dream I witnessed
God's great Judgement Day.

Standing room only
On God's great Judgement Day...
