1. It’s written in God’s Holy Word that Christ shall reappear
To take His blessed children home; that time is very near
He wanted all the saints to know; that’s why He gave us signs
If He should come this very hour I would not be surprised

(Chorus)
Well, I would not be surprised (if old Gabriel’s trumpet should sound)
Well, I would not be surprised (if I should leave the ground)
Well, I would not be surprised if He should come back tonight
When I see the world and all its signs

2. You’d better get prepared to go, so put your trust in Him
He’ll cleanse your weary heart from sin if you would ask Him in
When He’ll return we can’t be sure; that’s why He gave us signs
If He should come this very night I would not be surprised

Repeat Chorus

I would not be surprised
I would not be surprised

Repeat Chorus

When I see the world and all its signs
When I see the world and all its signs
Well, I would not be surprised, I would not be surprised
I would not be surprised when I see the world and all its signs
