First Step To Heaven
Recorded by the Oak Ridge Boys
Written by Emory Gordy and Jim Rushing
[3/4 time]

C G7 C
Wake up oh sinner you're facing the darkness of death
G7 F
Each moment could be the moment you draw your last breath
And the weight of your fears are the shackles that keep you enslaved
G7 C
But the blood of the lamb is the one way to bypass the grave

G7 C
The first step to heaven is knowing you're lost
G7 C
The highway to glory is the way of the cross
You can hand Him your burdens the moment you see
G7 C
The first step to heaven is down on your knees

G7 C
To all you believers who have answered the good shepherd's call
G7 F
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
G7 C
That mansion up yonder is reserved for those who believe

Repeat #2

G7 C
The first step to heaven is down on your knees
