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