C
This world can't stand that long
F              C
Be ready don't wait too late
G
You should know it can't stand long
                      C
For it is too full of hate
For a long time this world has stood
Gets more wicked every day
the maker who created it
Surely won't let it stand this way
This world can't stand too long
Be ready don't wait too late
You should know it can't stand long
For it is too full of hate
This world's been destroyed before
Cause it is too full of sin
For that very reason
It will be destroyed again
This world it can't stand long
Be ready don't wait too late
You should know it can't stand long
For it is too full of hate
If we only give our hearts to God
Let him lead us by the hand
Nothing in this world to fear
He'll lead you across the golden sand
This world it can't stand long
Be ready don't wait too late
You should know it can't stand long
For it is too full of hate
