I've used this in several setlists.  Anyone have the lyrics and chords.  Most importantly, I need the songwriter's name.  PLEASE SEARCH THE BOOK AGAIN.  Thanks so much for any help.

Hi BlueGrassGospelGirl

You can find the lyrics here.

The songwriter's name is Jerry Goff.

There's a nice bluegrass recording of it here

God bless!

                                                                          Key of  F

I dreamed that I had died and gone to Heaven
     G                                       D
I stood just outside the Eastern Gates

The man from the Gate, said, “Have you’ve been born again,”
             E                                             A7
And is your name written in the Book of Life?

                                          D      G
            Please search the Book again
            I thought my name was there
            I went to church on Sunday
                       G                     D
            But I never knelt in prayer
            Please search the Book again
            It’s too late now I know
            Please search the Book again
                 G            D
            Before you make me go.

I told him all the things that I had done
   G                                             D
I told him all the trophies I had won

But the man said to me have you been set free?
      E                                     A7
Is your name written in the Book of Life?


And then he turned and left me standing there
   G                                              D
I knew it was too late now for prayer

So my sinner friend if you want to make it in
          E                                            A7
Then your name must be in the Book of Life!
