​Don't Want to Be Late

This song is by Don Francisco and appears on the album Forgiven (1977).

Original video
So you've heard the good news
But you're takin' it easy and slow
So many pleasures and a life full of leisure
That ya really don't wanna let go
You're thinkin' that later
You'll get your life straighter
And then you'll let Jesus come in
But if you're dodgin' the light
And you're takin' the night
You're gonna die in your guilt and your sin

I don't wanna be late
When it's time to go
I don't wanna be hidin'
When it's time to show
I don't wanna be sleepin'
When the trumpets blow
And if you miss that train
Well, there ain't but one place to go

Well, you've been foolin'
And coolin' it
And seekin' you a separate peace
Closin' your eyes and your ears
To the cries of the people Jesus died to release
You think you got your salvation
So your situation is all that you have on your mind
But if you're still sleepin' when the angels start reapin'
We're all gonna leave you behind

I don't wanna be late
When it's time to go
I don't wanna be hidin'
When it's time to show
I don't wanna be sleepin'
When the trumpets blow
And if you miss that train
Well, there ain't but one place to go

I don't wanna be late
When it's time to go
I don't wanna be hidin'
When it's time to show
I don't wanna be sleepin'
When the trumpets blow
And if you miss that train
Don't say I didn't tell ya so
