This joyful new gospel song is set in the style of a call-and-response spiritual. After a slow, passionate opening, the tempo accelerates and rhythmic exchange between soloist and choir takes center stage. The lyrics speak of how the singer is weary of this life and longs for something better. . .heaven. Promises of no pain, no tears and great joy await the singer there, but for now he sings, Lord, I'm too tired to go to heaven right now! Equally appropriate for school or church use.
