LYRICS: PLENTY GOOD ROOM
[African American spiritual]

There is plenty good room
Plenty good room
Plenty good room
Plenty good room
In my Father's kingdom
Plenty good room
Plenty good room
Choose your seat and sit down.

Plenty good room
Plenty good room
Plenty good room
Plenty good room
In my Father's kingdom
Plenty good room
Plenty good room
Choose your seats and sit down.

[chorus]

There's a long white robe up in heaven I know
There's a long white robe up in heaven I know
There's a long white robe up in heaven I know
We can choose our seat and sit down.

[chorus]

There are golden slippers in the heaven I know
There are golden slippers in the heaven I know
There are golden slippers in the heaven I know
Choose your seat and sit down.

[chorus]

There are starry crown in the heaven I know
There are starry crown in the heaven I know
There are starry crown in the heaven I know
Choose your seat and sit down.

Plenty good room
Plenty good room
Plenty good room
Plenty good room
In my Father's kingdom
Plenty good room
Plenty good room
Choose your seats and sit down.
