How I got over how I got over
How I got over how I got over
My soul look back and wonder how I got over

How I got over how I got over
How I got over how I got over
My soul look back and wonder how I got over

Just as soon as I see jesus oh yes
The man who made me free oh yes oh yes
He was the man that bleed and suffer oh yes oh yes oh yes
Who died for you and me oh yes

I wanna thank him
 Because he brought me oh yes
 Because he taught me oh yes oh yes
I wanna thank god because he kept me oh yes oh yes oh yes
 Cause he left me oh yes

I wanna sing hallelujah 
I might shout this evening trouble over
I'm gonna thank jesus for all he's done for me

Oh yell, how I got over, over
My soul look back and wonder how I got over
Oh yell, how I got over, over
My soul look back and wonder how I got over

I wanna wear a diamond gem
In the new jerusalem 
I wanna walk the street of gold
In the homeland of the old
I'm going to view the host in white 
Who travel both day and night  Coming up from every nation
On the way to the great carnation

I will sing hallelujah  Trouble over
I wanna thank jesus for all he's done for me
How I got over, over
My soul look back and wonder how I got over
How I got over, over
My soul look back and wonder how I got over
How I got over, over
My soul look back and wonder 
Soul look back and wonder 
Soul look back and wonder 
Soul look back and wonder how I got over

I wanna thank you thank you
 Thank you thank you
 Thank you]
 Thank you jesus thank you lord
 Thank you lord thank you
 Thank you jesus thank you lord
You brought me
You taught me lord
You kept me
And you never left me
 Thank you jesus  Thank you lord
How I got over how I got over
How I got over how I got over
My soul look back and wonder how I got over

Soul look back and wonder how I got over
Over, over
Soul look back and wonder 
Soul look back and wonder 
Soul look back and wonder how I got over
