Chorus:
Am I born to die, and must my trembling spirit fly?
Am I born to die, to lay this body down? O
Am I born to die, and must my trembling spirit fly?
Am I born to die, to lay this body down?

1 I'm going on to heaven and I don't mean to stop,
to lay this body down,
I don't mean to be no stumbling block
to lay this body down. O [Chorus]

2 If you get there before I do,
to lay this body down,
Just tell them all I'm coming too,
to lay this body down. O [Chorus]

3 O get back satan and let me by,
to lay this body down,
Goin't serve my Jesus till I die,
to lay this body down. O [Chorus]

4 When I get to heaven I'm goin't sit right down,
to lay this body down,
Goin't ask my Lord for my starry crown,
to lay this body down. O [Chorus]
