Brush the Dust From That Old Bible

This song is by Bradley Kincaid and appears on the compilation Atomic Platters: Cold War Music From the Golden Age of Homeland Security (2005).

In the Bible we are told in that ancient lore of old
How the world was destroyed by the flood
There was so much sin and vice, all the people lost their lives
For the Master had demanded his toll

In that same old ancient lore, there's a story I deplore
That the world will be destroyed again some time
Fire and brimstone so they say, will take all our lives away
When that atom bomb's placed on the firing line

So you'd better brush the dust from that old Bible
And look up to the stars when they shine
You'd better seek the solace from your Savior
When that atom bomb's placed on the firing line

If our statesmen only knew what this world is coming to
They would never let war be their goal
For the world is lost in sin all because of wicked men
And the atom bomb will take every soul.

So you'd better brush the dust from that old Bible
And look up to the stars when they shine
You'd better seek the solace of your Savior
When that atom bomb's placed on the firing line

There'll be no more smoke upon the water
There'll be no more fightin' in the sky
It all will happen in one awful moment
And every livin' thing on earth will die

There'll be no farewells to our loved ones
There'll be no time for sayin' goodbye
It all will happen in one awful moment
When that atom bomb's placed on the firing line

So you'd better brush the dust from that old Bible
And look up to the stars when they shine
You'd better seek the solace from your Savior
When that atom bomb's placed on the firing line
