do you fear this man's inventionthat they call atomic powerare we all in great confusiondo we know the time or hourwhen a terrible explosionmay rain down upon our landleaving horrible destructionblotting out the works of manare you, are you readyfor that great atomic powerwill you rise and meet your savior in the airwill you shout or will you crywhen the fire rains from on highare you ready for that great atomic powerthere is one way to escapeand be prepared to meet the lordwhen the mushroom of destruction fallsthere is a shielding swordhe will surely stand beside youand you'll never taste of deathfor your soul will fly to safetyand eternal peace and restare you, are you readyfor that great atomic powerwill you rise and meet your savior in the airwill you shout or will you crywhen the fire rains from on highare you ready for that great atomic power
