Somewhere in outer space
God has prepared a place
For those who trust him and obey.

Jesus will come again
Although we don't know when
The countdown's gettin closer everyday.

Ten and Nine
Eight and Seven
Six and Five and Four
Count upon the Savior while you may.

Three and Two
Comin through the clouds in bright array
The countdown's getting lower everyday.

Information About Countdown

The line "The countdown's getting lower everyday" is also sometimes written as "The countdown's getting closer everyday". Very similar!

I would like to use this song in a workshop , teaching SS teachers and Good News Club teachers how to visualize a song. To the daughter of Dorothy Montgomery do I need copyright permission to do this. I have the sheet music. If so , do I have your permission. I have parents of children who sang this song in GNC and would like their dhildren to learn it as well. Thank you.

I first heard the song at a Presbyterian farm/orphanage near the town of Hazard KY. I later found the music in a songbook given me as a prize by the Bible Memory Association that was used in the camp they had in New York. The camp had "Lake" in its name. I ended up giving the book away when my suitcase was overstuffed coming back from Korea.

To those of you looking for Countdown. My mother, Dorothy Montgomery, wrote it. She is in heaven now, since Dec 2010. I'd be happy to share any info with you about it. Would love to see the words in Spanish, too. And any other languages. I know it has been translated into several. Blessings on you all.

I have taught this song to children from kindergarten to second grade, over the past 20 years. Each group of children have loved learning this song! I never knew there was a second verse - thank you for putting it on here! Will definitely be adding it!

Verse 2 Jesus was crucified, Suffered and bled and died, But on the cross He did not stay, He gave His promise true, "I will come back for you" The countdown's getting lower everyday

To the one that has Spanish lyrics, could you pen them here? Also, if you go to youtube and type in the first line in English there is a video of kids singing it.
