When You See My Coffin Come


Refrain:
Rock, Mt. Sinai,
Rock, Mt. Sinai,
Rock, Mt. Sinai, in that morning;
Rock, Mt. Sinai,
Rock, Mt. Sinai,
Rock, Mt. Sinai, in that morning.

When you see my coffin come,
Then you will know my race is run, O [Refrain]

Sinner, sinner, you will feel,
This old earth rock and reel. [Refrain]

Man of sorrows, sinner, see,
Died for you, died for me. [Refrain]

Sinner, sinner, in the mire,
On you Heaven will rain fire. [Refrain]
