When I die and they lay me to rest
 Gonna go to the place that's best
When they lay me down to die
Goin' on up to the Spirit in the sky

Goin' on up to the Spirit in the sky (Spirit in the sky)
That's where I'm gonna go when I die (When I die)
When I die and they lay me to rest
I'm gonna go to the place that's the best

 Prepare yourself, you know it's a must
 Gotta have a friend named Jesus 
So you know that when you die
It's gonna recommend you to the Spirit in the sky (Spirit in the sky)

 Gonna recommend you to the Spirit in the sky
That's where you're gonna go when you die (When I die)
When you die and they lay you to rest
You gonna go to the place that's the best

 Never been a sinner, I've never sinned
I've got a friend named Jesus 
So you know that when I die
He's gonna set me up with the Spirit in the sky

Oh set me up with the spirit in the sky
That's where I'm gonna go when I die
When I die and they lay me to rest
 Gonna go to the place that's the best
I'm Gonna go to the place that's the best
