Ain't That Good News

Full Text

1 I got a robe up in-a that kingdom
Ain’-a that good news,
Ain’-a that good news.
I’m gonna lay down this world
gonna shoulder up-a my cross.
Gonna take it home-a to my Jesus
ain’-a that good news, ain’-a that good news.

2 I got a crown up in-a that kingdom
Ain’-a that good news,
Ain’a that good news.
I’m gonna lay down this world
gonna shoulder up-a my cross.
Gonna take it home-a to my Jesus
ain’-a that good news, ain’-a that good news.

3 I got a savior in-a that kingdom . . .
Ain’-a that good news,
Ain’a that good news.
I’m gonna lay down this world
gonna shoulder up-a my cross.
Gonna take it home-a to my Jesus
ain’-a that good news, ain’-a that good news.
