Book of life- Nathaniel Bassey

Verse1: This is the story of a brother
Who slept and woke up in Foreverland.
He looked around nothing’s familiar.
He wondered how he got to be there.
He took a walk around the city
And saw this brick house with a small door.
He walked into the room and saw a man in white
Must be an angel so he said:
“Mr. Angel I’m a stranger, don’t know what’s going on,
The last thing I remember was I slept last night”.
This is a border town that takes you where you get a crown.
Must have heard of Heaven where you came from.
Only those whose name I find
Written in this book of life,
Will forever be in paradise.
Chorus: Is your name in this book of life?
Is your name in this book of life here?
Is your name in this book of life?
Is your name in this book of life here?
Verse2: Flipping the pages of this great book,
This brother gave a cursory gaze.
He saw the names of prophets, saints and martyrs
Who kept the faith and won the race.
But he said “Mr. Angel, where is my name?”
“Can you tell me what is going wrong?
“I’m a pillar in my local church,
Give the offerings and the tithes
Feed the poor and have myself a good name”
Chorus: Is my name in this book of life?
Is my name in this book of life here?
Tell me is my name in this book of life?
Is my name in this book of life here?
Verse3: Unforgiveness lurks within your heart.
Some folks that you will never let go.
Little foxes and secret faults
Will spring surprises on that final day.
Oh oh oh…
So much for this wonder brother.
What about you? What about me?
Let him who thinks that he stands,
Let him take heed lest he falls.
Only the pure in heart will see Jesus.
Those whose garment glow with purity.
Chorus: Is your name in that book of life?
Is your name in that book of life there?
Is your name in that book of life?
Tell me is your name in that book of life there?
Think about it.
