82. I've Got a Robe

1 I've got a robe, you've got a robe,
All of God's children got a robe.
When I get to heav'n goin' to put on my robe,
Goin' to shout all over God's heav'n,
Heav'n, heav'n.
Ev'rybody talkin' 'bout heav'n ain't goin' there,
Heav'n, heav'n,
Goin' to shout all over God's heav'n.

2 I've got shoes, you've got shoes,
All of God's children got shoes.
When I get to heav'n goin' to put on my shoes,
Goin' to walk all over God's heav'n,
Heav'n, heav'n.
Ev'rybody talkin' 'bout heav'n ain't goin' there,
Heav'n, heav'n,
Goin' to walk all over God's heav'n.

3 I've got wings, you've got wings,
All of God's children got wings.
When I get to heav'n goin' to put on my wings,
Goin' to fly all over God's heav'n,
Heav'n, heav'n.
Ev'rybody talkin' 'bout heav'n ain't goin' there,
Heav'n, heav'n,
Goin' to fly all over God's heaven.

4 I've got a crown, you've got a crown,
All of God's children got a crown.
When I get to heaven goin' to put on my crown,
Goin' to shout all over God's heav'n,
Heav'n, heav'n.
Ev'rybody talkin' 'bout heav'n ain't goin' there,
Heav'n, heav'n,
Goin' to shout all over God's heav'n.

5 I've got a harp, you've got a harp,
All of God's children got a harp.
When I get to heav'n goin' to put on my harp,
Goin' to play all over God's heav'n,

Heav'n, heav'n,
