“Spirit in the Sky” – performed by Gareth Gates

When I die and they lay me to rest
Gonna go to the place that’s the best
When I lay me down to die
Goin’ up to the spirit in the sky

Goin’ up to the spirit in the sky
That’s where I’m gonna go when I die
When I die and they lay me to rest
Gonna go to the place that’s the best

Prepare yourself you know it’s a must
Got to have a friend in Jesus
So you know that when you die
He’s gonna recommend you
To the spirit in the sky

Goin’ up to the spirit in the sky
That’s where I’m gonna go when I die
When I die and they lay me to rest
Gonna go to the place that’s the best

Never been a sinner I never sinned
I got a friend in Jesus
So you know that when I die
He’s gonna set me up with
The spirit in the sky

Oh set me up with the spirit in the sky
That’s where I’m gonna go when I die
When I die and they lay me to rest
I’m gonna go to the place that’s the best

Oh set me up with the spirit in the sky
That’s where I’m gonna go when I die
When I die and they lay me to rest
I’m gonna go to the place that’s the best

Goin’ on up to the spirit in the sky
That’s where I’m gonna go when I die
When I die and they lay me to rest
Gonna go to the place that’s the best

Go to the place that’s the best
Go to the place that’s the best
Go to the place that’s the best

For the families and friends of a person who passed away, death is definitely a devastating event that is very difficult to accept. But for the soul of the deceased, death is a spiritual journey that will make him closer to the creator. This is what the song by Gareth Gates entitled ‘Spirit in the Sky” is all about.

In death, the spirit joins a journey of souls to the heavens up above the clouds. During the funeral services, it is important for family members to send prayers and well wishes for the deceased so that he can feed on those prayers as he flies to Jesus.

The lyrics of the song talk about death as a positive experience. This will help families understand that death is not abandonment. It is merely a steppingstone that everyone will have to go through before the spirit travels to a better and safer place.

Through this piece, grieving families will realize that even if death is a painful experience, there is something good that happens out of it.
