Go To The Ant

Written by George Leon Pike, Sr.

1. The shadows are falling,

The time is far spent,

The closing of day is at hand,

The dead shall arise to that judgment on high,

They’ll stand and face God in the end.

 

2. There’s a great roll call up in glory,

The summons has come from on high,

The trumpet shall sound, we’ll gather around,

The great white throne in the sky.

 

3. Men of great valor shall gather,

In heaven to answer their call,

There’ll be Peter with John and God’s Holy Son,

I wonder if I’ll be noticed at all.

 

4. Hear, oh my brother, take warning,

Soon you must answer the call,

Of that great roll call up in heaven above,

That’s coming to one and to all.

 

Chorus:

So go to the ant now you sluggard,

Consider his way and be wise,

For they lay up in summer for winter,

To hide from the snow and the ice.
