The First Step To Heaven

Composed by Emory Gordy, Jim Rushing

Sung by The Oak Ridge Boys

Album(CD): From The Heart [Spring Hill] (2001)

Wake up Oh sinner, you are facing the darkness of death

Each moment could be the moment you draw your last breath

And the weight of your fears are the shackles that keep you enslaved

But the Blood of the Lamb is the one way to bypass the grave.

The first step to Heaven, is knowing you’re lost

The highway to Glory, is the way of the Cross

You can lend Him your burdens the moment your see

The first step to Heaven, is down on your knees.

To all you believers who have answered the Good Shepherd's call

Flood the chasm of darkness with the light that can save one and all

Not a soul crosses Jordan on the strength of their money or deeds

A Mansion up yonder is reserved for those who believe.

The first step to Heaven, is knowing you‘re lost (knowing your lost)

The highway to Glory, is the way of the Cross

You can lend Him your burdens the moment your see

The first step to Heaven, is down on your knees. (down on your knees)
