Verse 1: Judgment is surely coming, Coming to you and me, We will be judged that morning For all eternity; Some will go into Heaven, Others will be denied; Will you be in that number Standing outside?
Verse 2: Standing outside while loved ones, Enter the pearly gate, Knowing that there forever, You will then separate; To be away from loved ones And by your God denied; O what an awful picture, Standing outside!
Verse 3: Can you not see the picture Of those who’re lost in sin, Standing outside the portals, Without a hope to win? Souls crushed with deepest sorrow, Without a friend to guide? O what an awful picture, Standing outside!
Chorus: Standing outside the portals, Standing outside denied, Knowing that with the demons Ever you shall abide; Never to share the beauties, Waiting the sanctified, O what an awful picture, Standing outside!
