Jesus Built a Bridge to Heaven Lyrics

by Blind Boys of Alabama

One, two, three and

Jesus built a bridge to Heaven
A mighty, mighty bridge to Heaven
Jesus built a bridge to Heaven
With three nails and two cross ties

Jesus built a bridge to Heaven
A mighty, mighty bridge to Heaven
Jesus built a bridge to Heaven
With three nails and two cross ties

Moses took them by the hand
And led them across the barren land
Pharaoh chased them night and day
But the angel of the Lord kept him away

Jesus built a bridge to Heaven
A mighty, mighty bridge to Heaven
Jesus built a bridge to Heaven
With three nails and two cross ties

A humble carpenter by trade
You'll know him by the works he made
No towers of stone, no works of steel
But a wooden cross on a wind swept hill

Jesus built a bridge to Heaven
A mighty, mighty bridge to Heaven
Jesus built a bridge to Heaven
With three nails and two cross ties

I tell you, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Well, well, He has, yeah, oh yeah
Three nails and two cross ties

No boulevard, no avenue
Not a road by man can carry you
But a highway built by hands unseen
To the city of gold for eternity

Jesus built a bridge to Heaven
A mighty, mighty bridge to Heaven
Jesus built a bridge to Heaven
With three nails and two cross ties

Jesus built a bridge to Heaven
A mighty, mighty bridge to Heaven
Jesus built a bridge to Heaven
With three nails and two cross ties

Jesus built a bridge to Heaven
A mighty, mighty bridge to Heaven
Jesus built a bridge to Heaven
With three nails and two cross ties
