"OH, SINNER, YOU’D BETTER GET READY
"

from « Spirituals»
by William Stickles, 1948

   Oh, sinner man, you had better pray
Time is a-coming that sinner must die
For it look-a like judgement ev’ry day
Time is a-coming that sinner must die

    Oh, sinner, you’d better get ready
Ready, my Lord, ready
Oh, sinner, you’d better get ready
For time is a-coming that sinner must die 

I heard a lumb’ring in the sky
Time is a-coming that sinner must die
That make me think my time was nigh
Time is a-coming that sinner must die
