Refrain:
Listen to the lambs; (all a crying)
Listen to the lambs; (all a crying)
Listen to the lambs crying. (all a crying.)
I want to go to Heaven when I die.
O listen to the lambs; (all a crying)
Listen to the lambs; (all a crying)
Listen to the lambs crying. (all a crying.)
I want to go to Heaven when I die.

1 Come on sister with your ups and downs,
Want to go to Heaven when I die.
Angels waiting for to give you a crown,
Want to go to Heaven when I die. O [Refrain]

2 Come on sister, and a-don't be shame,
Want to go to Heaven when I die.
Angels waiting for to write your name,
Want to go to Heaven when I die. O [Refrain]

3 Mind out brother how you walk the cross,
Want to go to Heaven when I die.
Foot might slip and your soul get lost,
Want to go to Heaven when I die. O [Refrain]
