Everybody Wants To Go To Heaven lyrics

Album: Collision: The Eschatology Of Bluegrass

Everybody wants to go to heaven
But nobody wants to die
Lord, I want to go to heaven
But I don’t want to die
Though I long for the day when I have new birth
Still I love livin’ here on earth
Everybody wants to go to heaven
But nobody wants to die

Once upon a time
There lived a man
And his name was Hezekiah
He walked with God both day and night
But he didn’t want to die
He cried, “O Lord, please let me live
Death is close, I know.”
Lord smiled down on Hezekiah
Gave him 15 years to go

Jesus lived here on this earth
He knew his Father’s plan
He knew that He must give His life
To save the souls of man
When Judas had betrayed Him
A father heard Him cry
He was brave until His death
But He didn’t want to die
