How I Got Over Lyrics

How I got over
How did I make it over
You know my soul look back and wonder
How did I make it over

How I made it over
Going on over all these years
You know my soul look back and wonder
How did I make it over

Tell Me how we got over 'LORD'
Had a mighty hard time coming on over
You know my soul look back and wonder
How did we make it over

Tell me how we got over 'LORD'
I've been falling and rising all these years
But you know my soul look back and wonder
How did I make it over

But, soon as I can see JESUS
The man that died for me
Man that bled and suffered
and he hung on Calvary

And I want to thank him for how he brought me
And I want to thank GOD for how he taught me
Oh thank my GOD how he kept me
I'm gonna thank him 'cause he never left me

Then I'm gonna thank GOD for 'ole time religion
and I'm gonna thank GOD for giving me a vision
One day I'm gonna join the heavenly choir
I'm gonna sing and never get tired

And then I'm gonna sing somewhere 'round GODS alter
And I'm gonna shout all my troubles over
You know I've gotta thank GOD and thank him for being
so good to me. 'LORD YEAH'

How I made it over 'LORD' I had to cry in the midnight hour
coming on over, but you know my soul look back and wonder
How did I make it over

Tell me how I made it over 'LORD GOD LORD'
Falling and rising all these years
you know my soul look back and wonder
How did I make it over

I'm gonna wear a diamond garment
In that new Jerusalem, I'm gonna walk the streets of gold
It's the homeland of the soul
I'm gonna view the host in white
They've been traveling day and night
Coming up from every nation
They're on their way to the great Cognation
Coming from the north, south, east, and west
On their way to a land of rest
and their gonna join the heavenly choir
You know we're gonna sing and never get tired
and then we're gonna sing somewere 'round GODS alter
and then we're gonna shout all our troubles over
You know we gotta thank GOD and thank him for being
so good to me

You know I come to thank GOD this evening, I come to
thank him this evening, You know all night long
GOD kept his angels watching over me
and early this morning, early this morning
GOD told his angel GOD said 'touch her in my name'
God said 'touch her in my name'
I 'rose this morning, I 'rose this morning
I 'rose this morning, I feel like shouting
I feel like shouting, I feel like shouting
I feel like shouting, I feel like shouting
I feel like shouting, I feel like shouting
I just gotta thank GOD, I just gotta thank GOD
I just gotta thank GOD, I just gotta thank him
Thank GOD for being so good, GODS been good to me
