I'd rather have a back seat in heaven
than a front seat in hell.
I'd rather know Jesus
than in a mansion dwell.

When this life is over
and judgement day is here,
when the Lamb's book is opened
my name I want to hear.

This life on earth is troubling 
with the devil running free.
Following God is not as simple
as it used to be.

New trials and temptations
we face every day,
but they will all be over
when Jesus comes to stay.

On that great judgement morning
when my Savior returns,
I'll be on my way to heaven
while this sinful world burns.
