Highway to heaven?

Let's see whether you can figure out which of these two hymns is more famous.


I wandered the world - many paths and lines -
Lost yet seeking salvation's holy signs.
Then, humble and meek, I lay prostrate to pray:
"O holy ghost, light to me the way!"
"Hold my hand!", I begged. "O Lord, lead me on!"
When we die in Him, we'll wake to new dawn.

With Him we breathe; in Him we live.
Till the tired body's no more to give.
'Good night' - awaiting new day, open sky,
An omnipotent God, the angels on high -
When an end doth come to my holy fight
And I'm bathed in healing noon-day light.

Alleluia, I'm now in my home again,
Up with the messiah, in no more pain.
On my way, soft angel wings take me higher
To harken to yon holy heavenly choir.
Singing hymns, "Holy, holy, holy", I go.
My pennant it's 'Gloria Domino Deo nostro'.

Living easy, livin' free
Season ticket, on a one-way ride
Asking nothing, leave me be
Taking everything in my stride
Don't need reason, don't need rhyme
Ain't nothing I would rather do
Going down, party time
My friends are gonna be there too

I'm on the highway to hell
Highway to hell
I'm on the highway to hell
Highway to hell
No stop signs, speed limit

Nobody's gonna slow me down
Like a wheel, gonna spin it
Nobody's gonna mess me 'round
Hey Satan! Paid my dues.
Playin' in a rockin' band
Hey Momma! Look at me
I'm on my way to the promised land

I'm on the highway to hell
Highway to hell
I'm on the highway to hell
Highway to hell

Don't stop me!
And I'm going down, all the way down
I'm on the highway to hell
