The Gates of Heaven


The gates of Heaven will open for me.
Praise the Lord, I will be set free.
I will be in the place I adore.
I will be there forevermore.
When I was a little child,
my mother said to me:
If you want to go to Heaven
you better obey the Lord, don't you see.
Pray and pray again,
and the Lord will forgive your sin.
The gates of Heaven will open for me.
Praise the Lord, I will be set free.
I will be in the place I adore.
I will be there forevermore.
