It's All Right lyrics
Saturday, September 1, 2007
Listen

I went down to the valley to pray
My soul got happy and I stayed all day
Since my soul's got a seat up in the kingdom
that's all right.

One of these days, it won't be long
They call my name and I'll be gone
Since my soul's got a seat up in the kingdom
that's all right.

Jacob's Ladder is long and tall
By the grace of God, I shall not fall
Since my soul's got a seat up in the kingdom,
that's all right

Here in the city of St. Paul
Same Lord God made us all
Since my soul's got a seat up in the kingdom,
That's all right

I was walking around the Fair
Loving everybody who I saw there
Since my soul's got a seat up in the kingdom
that's all right.

I'm a sinner, I've done wrong
Still I'm singing all day long
Since my soul's got a seat up in the kingdom
that's all right.

God is love and God is grace
And I believe I'll see his face
Since my soul's got a seat up in the kingdom
that's all right.

Helen Schneyer sang this song
And I miss her since she's gone
But her soul's got a seat up in the kingdom, that's all right.
