The First Step To Heaven

Wake up Oh [G] sinner, you're [D] facing the darkness [G] death Each [C] moment may be the moment you take your last [G] breath And the [C] weight of your fears are the shackles that keep you [G] enslaved But the blood of the Lamb is the [D] one way to bypass the [G] grave. The first step to [D] heaven, is knowing you?re [G] lost The highway to [D] Glory, is the way of the [G] Cross You can hand Him your [C] burdens the moment your [G] see The first step to [D] Heaven, is down on your [G] knees. To you [G] believers who've [D] answered the Good Shepherd's [G] call Flood the [C] chasm of darkness with the light that can save one and [G] all Not a [C] soul crosses Jordan on weight of the money or [G] deeds That Mansion up yonder is [D] reserved for those who [G] believe. The first step to [D] heaven, is knowing you?re [G] lost The highway to [D] Glory, is the way of the [G] Cross You can hand Him your [C] burdens the moment your [G] see The first step to [D] Heaven, is down on your [G] knees. You can hand Him your [C] burdens the moment your [G] see The first step to [D] Heaven, is down on your [G] knees.
