I Don't Want to Stay Down

Vocal: Tommy Marshall

Grand Piano: Rick Weaver

Hammond Organ: Sean Durham

Recorded in The Tabernacle Church Sanctuary 1989

 

VERSE 1:

The day is coming soon when all the Earth will say,

"See the sky is opening there's something going on"

Then the trumpet's gonna blow and people will be running 'round

Some will rise up in the sky but a whole lot are gonna stay down

 

 

CHORUS:

Lord, take me up to Heaven's shore

'Cause I want to be with Jesus ever more

I don't worry 'bout no mansion, no trophies or no crown

When we're going up I don't want to stay down

 

VERSE 2:

Lord help me today to point someone towards Jesus

Give me the right words to say and show me what to do

Lord I try with all my might to tell the lost that I've been found

And if they'll only trust in Jesus they won't have to stay down.

 

CHORUS:

Lord, take me up to Heaven's shore

'Cause I want to be with Jesus ever more

I don't worry 'bout no mansion, no trophies or no crown

When we're going up I don't want to stay down

 

Lord, take me up to Heaven's shore

'Cause I want to be with Jesus ever more

I don't care about no mansion, no trophies or no crown

But when we're going up I don't want to stay down

But when it's time to go up I don't want to stay down
