When You Stand Before the Lord





when you stand before the lord  bee bees


When You Stand Before the Lord


The day will soon be coming

To stand before the Lord

God will hold the Book of Life

Where all the names are stored.


Look into the Saviour's face

Stand on holy ground

Kneel before the King of Kings

Pray your name is found.


The time is nigh, it's drawing near

Tis' closer than you think

Eternal life with God above

You'll either rise or sink.


God doesn't care 'bout bank accounts

Or gems of pearl and jade

Your style of home, t he car you drive

The money that you've made.


He's not concerned with age or height

The color of your hair

The number of the friends you have

The brand of clothes you wear.


He'll ask you if you spoke His name

Thought of Him each day

Knew He gave His life for you

Took the time to pray.


He'll know about your closest friends

About the books you've read

The kind of thoughts that fill your mind

On what your spirit fed.


He'll take a look inside your soul

He'll go beyond your pride

Your sins will be as crimson red

There's nothing you can hide.


For once you've stood before the Lord

He'll see through every crack

And if you were to die today

There is no turning back.


You'll gaze into His crystal eyes

He knows the things you did

There's nothing you can keep from Him

Your secret thoughts aren't hid.


So before you meet the Lord

You better make it right

Start by getting on your knees

Kneel down to Him tonight.


Get rid of all your worldly ways

They'll just lead you astray

Find time to walk with Jesus

The Truth, the Light, the Way.


I'm telling you, it's not too late

God's waiting up above

To add you to His Book of Life

In Heaven up above.


When life on earth is over

He'll take one final look

When the roll is called up yonder

Will your name be in His book?
