Alison Krauss Lyrics

Everybody Wants To Go To Heaven Lyrics
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 wanna die.
He cried "Oh Lord, please let me live,
death is close I know" God smiled down on Hezekiah;
he give him fifteen years to go

(chorus)
Everybody wants to go to Heaven, but nobody wants to die.
Lord I wanna go to Heaven, but I don't wanna die.
Well, I long for the day when I'll have new birth, but I like livin' here on earth,
Everybody wants to go to Heaven, but nobody wants to die

When Jesus lived here on this earth, he knew his Father's plan.
He knew that he must give his life to save the soul of man.
When Judas had betrayed him, his Father heard him cry,
He was brave until his death but he didn't wanna die, Oh

(chorus x 2)
