The Heavenly Gospel Singers' version was recorded on 22 June 1936 as "I Am Working On The Building" on Bluebird 6636. At the time the group consisted of Jimmy "Gospel Jim" Bryant (bass), Hendson Massey (baritone), Fred Whitmore (tenor), and Roosevelt Fenoy (lead and manager).

I'm going up to heaven to get my reward
