1 I got a crown up in-a that kingdom,
Ain't-a that good news!
I got a crown up in-a that kingdom,
Ain't-a that good news!
I'm-a gonna lay down this world,
gonna shoulder up-a my cross.
Gonna take it home-a to my Jesus,
Ain't-a that good news!

2 I got a robe up in-a that kingdom,
Ain't-a that good news!
I got a robe up in-a that kingdom,
Ain't-a that good news!
I'm-a gonna lay down this world,
gonna shoulder up-a my cross.
Gonna take it home-a to my Jesus,
Ain't-a that good news!

3 I got a Savior in-a that kingdom,
Ain't-a that good news!
I got a Savior in-a that kingdom,
Ain't-a that good news!
I'm-a gonna lay down this world,
gonna shoulder up-a my cross.
Gonna take it home-a to my Jesus,
Ain't-a that good news!
