"When The Fire Comes Down" lyrics

When The Fire Comes Down

Way back in the days of Noah
Water covered all this land
Then the great rainbow of promise
Started up on life again

And the Good Book tells of fires
That will fill the earth some day
Then the sinful will be screaming
As this earth shall pass away

When the fire
Comes down from heaven
This old world
Will melt away
Millions then
Will cry for mercy
But it will be
Too late to pray

Oh, this world is at a tremble
And it's rocking to and fro
You can read it in the papers
Hear it on the radio

In the movies they are showing
Towns and cities, how they blaze
But there's hotter fire a coming
If we follow sin's highway

When the fire
Comes down from heaven
This old world
Will melt away
Millions then
Will cry for mercy
But it will be
Too late to pray

Texas City, Texas City
Oh, how awful was her fate
First she burned and then exploded
Now the story, we'll relate

Of the Winecoff in Atlanta
How she burned right to the ground
Of the great fire in Chicago
And the dead lay all around

When the fire
Comes down from heaven
This old world
Will melt away
Millions then
Will cry for mercy
But it will be
Too late to pray
