Midnight Cry, One of Southern Gospel Musics Best


Midnight Cry stands as one of the all time greats in Southern Gospel music. Originally recorded by Gold City with Ivan Parker as the lead vocal, Midnight Cry has been recorded by many artists in many genres. The Midnight Cry accompaniment track

remains one of the top selling tracks.

I asked Ivan Parker if he knew that this song was going to be a big hit when he first heard it. He smiles, “When I brought this one (Midnight Cry) to the table, I’ll never forget, Eldridge Fox reached over and grabbed a pen and wrote #1 on the lyrics sheet.”.

Ivan Parker still performs “Midnight Cry” at his concerts and Southern Gospel great Ivan Parker, vocalist on Gold City's Midnight Cry. does a wonderful job at making it sound new each time. “It’s honestly a fresh message to me”, Ivan replies when asked how he keeps the song sounding fresh. “It’s like you are singing about something that hasn’t happened yet. You’ve still got to tell the story.”

“I know how much people love that song (Midnight Cry)”, Ivan reflects, “and I know how much it’s blessing me., so there are a lot of times when I’m feeling what they’re feeling”. After hearing Ivan Parker sing this song several times, I believe he’s feeling it as much as the audience. It’s a wonderful song that 1800Contacts.com

blesses me every time I hear it!

I enjoy just about every version of this song that I have every heard. I enjoy hearing large chiors do this song as much as the original version. The Gaither Homecoming Version on the South African Homecoming DVD is one of my favorites. The powerful lyrics to this song are included at the bottom of this page. I hope that they bless you as much as they do me.

Lyrics to "Midnight Cry"


The Midnight CryBy Greg Day, Chuck Day

I hear the sound
of a mighty rushing wind
and it's closer now
than it's ever been
I can almost hear the trumpet
as Gabriel sounds the chord
at the midnight cry
we'll be going home

When Jesus steps out
on a cloud to call His children
Cigarrest to Stop Smoking in 7 Days!

the dead in Christ shall rise
to meet Him in the air
and then those that remain
will be quickly changed
at the midnight cry (at the midnight cry)
when Jesus comes again

I look around me
I see prophecies fulfilling
and signs of the times
they're appearing everywhere
I can almost hear the Father
as He says
Son go get your children
at the midnight cry
the Bride of Christ will rise

When Jesus steps out
on a cloud to call His children
the dead in Christ shall rise
to meet Him in the air
and then those that remain
will be quickly changed
at the midnight cry (at the midnight cry)
when Jesus comes again

And then those that remain
will be quickly changed
at the midnight cry (at the midnight cry)
when Jesus comes again
at the midnight cry (at the midnight cry)
when Jesus comes again
when Jesus comes again
