lyrics

They tell me Jesus is a-comin' for you
Coming to take your soul away

I wanna hear you say that I-hi-hi am ready
For when he comes to take my soul away

They tell you are heaven bound
Called to glory in the clouds

I wanna hear you say that I-hi-hi am ready
For when I meet my maker in the clouds

I wanna hear you say that I-hi-hi am ready
For when he comes to take my soul away

They tell that the spirit is a-comin' for you
Coming to set your soul on fire

I wanna hear you say that I-hi-hi am ready
For when she comes to set my soul on fire

I wanna hear you say that I-hi-hi am ready
For when he comes to take my soul away

They tell me that the Devil is a-comin' for you
Coming to take you down below

I wanna hear you say that I-hi-hi am ready
For when the devil comes for my soul

I wanna hear you say that I-hi-hi am ready
For when he comes to take my soul away

They tell me Jesus and the Devil are one
With God and the spirit too

I wanna hear you say that I-hi-hi am ready
Because the whole world is inside you
