about

This is another song from BURIED (see song #4). YOU WILL ANSWER is my gospel song. I have no formal training in theology. I consider myself more of a hobbyist. Still, there has to be a special place in hell for the bastards who let the Sago familes rejoice for hours before they got up the nerve to go in and lower the boom. Vacation Bible School alumni will appreciate this one.
Still, if you would like to renounce some wealth and share it with the poor, I hope you will buy this album. Thanks for playing along at home.

lyrics

Last night as I lay tossing and a-turning in my bed
I dreamed that I was in the presence of the Lord
With a dozen Sago miners who had gone to their reward
And God looked down on those miners and He said:

“Who has sent My faithful servants here unbidden to My Throne?
He will answer on the Judgment Day
Who has left their grieving families heartbroken and alone?
He will answer on the Judgment Day

Oh he will answer (he will answer) on that Judgment Day
He will answer on that Judgment Day
Oh he will answer (he will answer) on that Judgment Day
He will answer on that Judgment Day

“I have fashioned those who labor in My image,” God did say,
“And I did not call these miners home to Me
Many years I had allotted them with friends and family
Now the heavens weep to hear their orphans pray.”

You cannot serve God and mammon – if it’s mammon that you choose
You will answer on that Judgment Day
Now, what good is all your wealth if your eternal soul you lose?
You will answer on that Judgment Day

You will answer (you will answer) on that Judgment Day
You will answer on that Judgment Day
You will answer (you will answer) on that Judgment Day
You will answer on that Judgment Day

It is easier to get a camel through a needle’s eye
Than a rich man into heaven, it’s been told
Every time a human life’s cut short by avarice for gold
There will be a day of judgment bye and bye

If you’ve garnered earthly riches and you come to heaven’s door
You will answer on that Judgment Day
To love God you must renounce your wealth and share it with the poor, or
You will answer on that Judgment Day

You will answer (you will answer) on that Judgment Day
You will answer on that Judgment Day
You will answer (you will answer) on that Judgment Day
You will answer on that Judgment Day
