I got shoes, you got shoes
All God’s chillun got shoes
When I get to heav’n I’m goin’ to put on my shoes
I’m goin’ to walk all ovah God’s Heav’n
Heav’n , Heav’n
Ev’rybody talkin’ ’bout heav’n ain’t goin’ dere
Heav’n, Heav’n
I’m goin’ to walk all ovah God’s Heav’n

I got a robe. I got shoes. I got wings. Yes you may not be able to see them right now. In fact my situation may look so dark and drear that I even have to walk down here without shoes on. I may have my feet cracking from the punishment of the elements and my own weight crashing against them, but I won’t give up. I won’t give in. I will continue knowing that I do have shoes and they are sitting in a place that nobody can take them from me. And when I get to put on those shoes, I am going to walk all over God’s heaven. And lest you think that the inequality that humanity has set up on this earth will continue into the next life I gotta remind you that everybody talking about heaven ain’t going there. So says this spiritual.

We all can continue our fight in this life knowing that God has a way of equalizing all of the inequities of existence. And while we fight to bring God’s vision in our own life today, we always recognize that if I have to wait to get to heaven, I will put on my shoes and shout all over God’s heaven.
