Such a classic, I remember hearing this from when I was a boy. Spirit in the Sky is totally awesome, an amazing jam, and so... true! Gotta have a friend in Jesus. And people of America, this is who we all today still do need. I know I do! So get right with the man upstairs! What about it my friends on Pandora? This song rocks! And so is Jesus, he is The Rock! And the way and the truth, and the light! Amen!! Rock on my sisters and brothers! Rock on!
