The First 24
Lyrics
(Toronzo Cannon, Cannonball Express Music admin. by Small Scale Music, ASCAP)
  
Is that a white light headed my way?
Is that a white light headed my way?
Oh Lord, it must be, must be my judgment day
  
You gotta walk this road all by yourself
You gotta walk this road all by yourself
Just you alone and nobody else
 
The first 24, what will I see?
Will my Jesus, will he look like me?
 
Is that my grandfather reaching out to me?
Is that my grandfather reaching out to me?
I cried “Lord, have mercy,” when I saw him hanging from that tree
 
I see my friends, my enemies nowhere around
I see my friends, my enemies nowhere around
But I can hear their screams being chased by the hellhounds

The first 24, what will I see?
Will my ancestors, will they look for me?

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
Back to earth we return, every one of us

The first 24, what will you see?
Will you see heaven just like me?
