Satan's Choir was written by Tom Harley Campbell. It is on the Red Clay Ramblers' 1986 album "It Ain't Right" and on the Seldom Scene's 1988 album "A Change of Scenery". Unfortunately neither record contains printed lyrics.

Here you go. I always meant to transcribe it because it's a good'un:

SATAN'S CHOIR
(T. Campbell)

Will there be an angel band
That will take my trembling hand
To lead me through my dark and final hour
Or will the song of death I hear
Confirm the judgment that I fear
The dreadful sound of Satan's choir

Spare me lord, please heed my cry
A humble sinner with only one desire
Spare me lord, don't pass me by
I don't want to sing in Satan's choir

I was born in endless pain
Where the prince of darkness reigned
Will the song I sing be kindled by his fire
Will the gates of hell swing wide
Will there be no place to hide
From the sound of Satan's choir

Spare me lord, please heed my cry
A humble sinner with only one desire
Spare me lord, don't pass me by
I don't want to sing in Satan's choir

Will I hear the trumpet's blast
When my time has come to pass
Will my worried soul fly higher and higher
Or will I join the ranks below
Where the wretched sinner goes
To sing a song in Satan's choir

Spare me lord, please heed my cry
A humble sinner with only one desire
Spare me lord, don't pass me by
I don't want to sing in Satan's choir (x2)

My pleasure, Rich r. The song selection of the Red Clay Ramblers and the Seldom Scene was never less than interesting and most often wonderful - to my taste anyway.

Regards, Stewie.

From the Red Clay Ramblers' recording:

SATAN'S CHOIR
(T. Campbell)

Will there be an angel band
That will take my trembling hand
To lead me on in my dark and final hour
Or will the song in death I hear
Confirm the judgment that I fear
The dreadful sound of Satan's choir

Spare me lord, oh heed my cry
A humble sinner, I've only one desire
Spare me lord, don't pass me by
I don't want to sing in Satan's choir

Will I live on in endless pain
Where the prince of darkness reigns
Will the song I sing be kindled by his fire
Will the gates of hell swing wide
Will there be no place to hide
From the sound of Satan's choir

Spare me lord, oh heed my cry
A humble sinner, I've only one desire
Spare me lord, don't pass me by
I don't want to sing in Satan's choir

Will I hear the trumpet's blast
When at last I come to pass
Will my winged soul fly higher and higher
Or will I join the ranks below
Where the wretched sinners go
To sing a song in Satan's choir

Spare me lord, please heed my cry
A humble sinner, I've only one desire
Spare me lord, don't pass me by
I don't want to sing in Satan's choir (x2)

Actually, I think Stewie is a bit off and Claude has a couple of errors as well...
"hear" vs "heed" - listen carefully, it is actually "hear"
"their songs" vs. "a song" - again, listen carefully, that stanza ends in a possessive plural.
