Song Squawk – Personal Judgement Day

In the mid nineties, I had a little red Buick and a big ol’ bass box in the trunk, and would listen to “Christian Rock”, cranked to 11.

(What did you say?  Huh?  Can  you say that again, I didn’t hear you….)

I have gotten away from that genre for many reasons, the least of which may be a loss of hearing, but some songs have stuck with me over the decades.

The artist’s I listened to sought to reflect Scriptural teaching for the most part. They ranged from “preaching” pop culture religion to significant theological teaching. As I listened to the lyrics, I found some to be quite challenging.

To be honest, I listened because I could justify the rock beat with “sanctified lyrics”.

Occassionaly I will post a song, supply the lyrics and make a comment or two. If you decide to listen to the tune, turn the speaker down unless you are already deaf. Some of the songs tend to have a certain “volume” about them!


This post will consider the song

Personal Judgement Day – Big Tent Revival

This group was one of the first “Contemporary Christian Groups” I began to listen to, and this song was typical of this group’s sound.

Gonna be a hot time on the old town tonight
We’re goin out; gonna do it up right
But in the middle of a casual grin–
In the blink of an eye, He’s coming again
Don’t have to listen to what I say
Don’t have to bow your head and pray
But your personal judgement day
Is only a breath away

Accepted Jesus at Forty-Five
Said “Man I’m glad to be alive
All my friends are dead you see
And one bad trip and it could’ve been me”

The bible talks about a book of names–
Souls rescend from the flames
So brother tell me, when it all is through

Do you know Jesus, and does He know you?

BTR was a very popular group in it’s day and found success with each of their albums

Take a listen!

Let me know what you think of the lyrics, and of the tunes!
