“What On Earth (Will You Do For Heaven’s Sake)?” Lyrics

What on Earth will you do for heaven’s sake?

Johnny Cash (“Personal File” album)

 

 

Did you walk another mile

 

Turn a frown with a smile

 

Did you lift a lowly heart about to break

 

Would you also give your cloak to one that took away your coat?

 

What on earth will you do for heaven’s sake?

 

 

Did you feed the poor in spirit

 

And defend the prosecuted

 

Will you show the bound that all the chains can break?

 

Did you sow the proper seed; are you keeping out the weeds?

 

What on earth will you do for heaven’s sake?

 

 

Will you be one of the meek?

 

Did you turn the other cheek

 

Would you give a little more than you will take

 

Did you shine your little light

 

Upon the children of the night

 

What on earth will you do for heaven’s sake?

 

 

Did you feed the poor in spirit?

 

And defend the prosecuted

 

Will you show the bound that all the chains can break?

 

Did you sow the proper seed, are you keeping out the weeds?

 

What on earth will you do for heaven’s sake?
