THE PALE HORSE AND HIS RIDER
Words and music by Johnny Bailes, Ervin Staggs, Zeke Clements and Kitty Wells

Listen, poor sinner: you're driftin' away
From the dear Saviour who's pleading today.
What will you do when the Saviour ain't nigh,
When the pale horse and his rider go by?

The time now ain't long when the Saviour will come.
Then you'll be judged by the deeds you have done.
On that judgment day, you'll weep and you'll cry
When the pale horse and his rider go by.

When that trumpet sounds on the sinners below,
Not even the angels in heaven will know.
Then's when you'll wish you had Jesus nigh,
When the pale horse and his rider go by.

Won't you redeem your poor wicked soul?
You can't pay your way with silver and gold.
If you're not saved, you'll be lost in the night
When the pale horse and his rider go by.

I also found this song in Bluegrass Unlimited, Volume 10. However, it has a different third verse:


Soften your heart and turn from all sin.
Jesus is waiting to welcome you in.
There's coming a time you'll wish he was nigh,
When the pale horse and his rider go by.

Some might wonder about the source of the "pale horse" reference in the Roy Acuff song. It comes from REVELATION 6:8, "And I looked, and behold, a pale horse! And its rider's name was Death, and Hades followed him. And they were given authority over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and with famine and with pestilence and by wild beasts of the earth" (English Standard Version).
