Judgment Day

Yolanda Cohen

A photo of a cross against the sky

"I told you how I died for you
on the cross of Calvary
I told you how I rose again
from sin to set you free
I told you of the end of time
all about eternity
I told you that I'd save your soul
If you would just believe."

"Now it's just too late to pray
on this great judgment day
Depart from me, I know you not
It's just too late to pray."

"Too late to ask forgiveness
For pardon from your sins
For when I came to call on you,
you wouldn't let me in.
You said that you were busy,
don't bother you that day,
You said that if I'd call again,
maybe then you'd pray."

"Now your prayers are just too late,
you have sealed your fate,
Depart from me, I know you not,
Your prayers are just too late."
