Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

210. 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 heaven goin' to put on my robe,
goin' to shout all over God's heaven, heaven, heaven.
Ev'rybody talking 'bout heaven ain't goin' there;
heaven, heaven,
goin' to shout all over God's heaven.

2 I've got shoes, you've got shoes,
all of God's children got shoes.
When I get to heaven goin' to put on my shoes,
goin' to walk all over God's heaven, heaven, heaven.
Ev'rybody talking 'bout heaven ain't goin' there;
heaven, heaven,
goin' to walk all over God's heaven.

3 I've got wings, you've got wings,
all of God's children got wings.
When I get to heaven goin' to put on my wings,
goin' to fly all over God's heaven, heaven, heaven.
Ev'rybody talking 'bout heaven ain't goin' there;
heaven, heaven,
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 heaven, heaven, heaven.
Ev'rybody talking 'bout heaven ain't goin' there;
heaven, heaven,
goin' to shout all over God's heaven.

5 I've got a harp, you've got a harp,
all of God's children got a harp.
When I get to heaven goin' to play my harp,
goin' to play all over God's heaven, heaven, heaven.
Ev'rybody talking 'bout heaven ain't goin' there;
heaven, heaven,
goin' to play all over God's heaven.

6 I've got a song, you've got a song,
all of God's children got a song.
When I get to heaven goin' to sing my song,
Goin' to sing all over God's heaven, heaven, heaven.
Ev'rybody talking 'bout heaven ain't goin' there;
heaven, heaven,
goin' to sing all over God's heaven.

7 I've got a prayer, you've got a prayer,
all of God's children got a prayer.
When I get to heaven goin' to pray my prayer,

Ev'rybody talking 'bout heaven ain't goin' there;
heaven, heaven,
goin' to pray all over God's heaven.
