Listen poor sinner, you're driftin' away
From the Dear Saviour who's pleading to day
What will you do when the Saviour ain't nigh
When the pale horse and his rider goes by?

The time now ain't long when the Saviour will come
Then you'll be judged by the deeds you have done
On that judgment day you'll weep and you'll cry
When the pale horse and his rider goes by

When that trumpet sounds on the sinners below
Not even the angels in heaven will know
Then's when you'll wish you had Jesus nigh
When the pale horse and his rider goes by

Won't you redeem your poor wicked soul
You can't pay your way with silver and gold
If you're not saved you'll be lost in the night
When the pale horse and his rider goes by
