Going To Church

Story Behind The Song

Most of us will know pious people who like to think they are good just because they go to church regularly. I believe that trying to lead a good life is the most important part and that turning up at church "hiding out in the throng" in itself is no guarantee of a place in heaven.

Song Description

If you think there's a place for you in heaven, there's more to religion than just turning up at church on a Sunday.

Lyrics

Chorus 1
Going to church won't get you to heaven
When you get to the end of the day
Only things that matter to the Good Lord
Is what you do and say
He might just take more notice if you get on your knees and pray
Going to church won't get you to heaven
But it might just pave the way

Verse 1
Do you remember when you cheated on your best friend
Or that deal you made which you knew was wrong
Best believe it'll make no difference to the final outcome
Turning up on Sunday and hiding out among the throng

Chorus 1
Going to church won't get you to heaven
But it might just pave the way
Only things that matter to the good Lord
Is what you do and say
He might just take more notice if you get on your knees and pray
Going to church won't get you to heaven
But it might just pave the way

Bridge
As one of god's sinners it's a long shot
But if you ditch your pride
It's not about the things you've got
But how you are inside

Stand up, be strong
If you repent your sins
You never know at the pearly gates
He might just let you in



Chorus 3
Going to church won't get you to heaven
At the end of the day
Only things that matter to the good Lord
Is what you do and say
He might just take more notice if you get on your knees and pray
Going to church won't get you to heaven
Oooh

Going to church won't get you to heaven
At the end of the day
Only things that matter to the Lord
Is what you do and say
He might just take more notice if you get on your knees and pray
Going to church won't get you to heaven
But it might just pave the way
Might just pave the way
Might just pave the way

great message. very down home feel. i hope you play many an outdoor festivals in your area spreading the good news!

Great hook, and good point! Really like the one!

The melody is excellent, and has that upbeat anthemic feel. I am agnostic, so I cannot empathize with the sentiment. But a great Faith song is what you aimed for, so in that you totally succeeded

Great song about trying to live a good life. I like your lyrics.

Great song with a calm and relaxing country genre vibe... Pure and sweet sounding to the ears...
Excellent job and execution Bob..... the Holy Spirit is smiling down upon you my brother.... This song is perfect for radio.... A 5 Star winner, TSW - The Song Writers
