Best Religious Music

Confession: Dolly Parton can do no wrong by us! But this is really Brad Paisley’s song and Dolly is just Cool Whip on the Jello. “When I Get Where I’m Going” is a religious song that is bold enough to envision heaven through its excellent lyrics. Brad Paisley sings and plays his way through it with emotional longing that serves the intent of the piece. Prayable’s picks “When I Get Where I’m Going” as today’s best religious music. You’ll probably shed a tear as you listen, and it will be worth it.

When I Get Where I’m Going Lyrics – Brad Paisley & Dolly Parton

When I get where I’m going
on the far side of the sky.
The first thing that I’m gonna do
Is spread my wings and fly.

I’m gonna land beside a lion,
and run my fingers through his mane.
Or I might find out what it’s like
To ride a drop of rain

(Chorus:)
Yeah when I get where I’m going,
there’ll be only happy tears.
I will shed the sins and struggles,
I have carried all these years.
And I’ll leave my heart wide open,
I will love and have no fear.
Yeah when I get where I’m going,
Don’t cry for me down here.

I’m gonna walk with my grandaddy,
and he’ll match me step for step,
and I’ll tell him how I missed him,
every minute since he left.
Then I’ll hug his neck.

(Chorus)

So much pain and so much darkness,
in this world we stumble through.
All these questions, I can’t answer,
so much work to do.

But when I get where I’m going,
and I see my Maker’s face.
I’ll stand forever in the light,
of His amazing grace.
Yeah when I get where I’m going,
Oh, when I get where I’m going,
there’ll be only happy tears.
Hallelujah!
I will love and have no fear.
When I get where I’m going.
Yeah when I get where I’m going.

Composers: George Teren and Rivers Rutherford
