Two Coats


Lyrics included so you can Sing Along....

Two coats were before me
An old and a new
I asked my sweet master
Oh what must I do

The old coat was ugly
So tattered and torn
The other a new one
Had never been worn

I'll tell you the best thing
I ever did do
I took off the old coat
And put on the new

The first man was earthy
And made from the ground
We bore all his image
The whole world around

The next was my savior
From heaven so fair
He bought me this new coat
You now see me wear

I'll tell you the best thing
I ever did do
I took off the old coat
And put on the new

Now this coat it suits me
And keeps me warm
It's good in the winter
It's good in the storm

My savior has dressed me
In a garment so rare
He bought me this new coat
You now see me wear

I'll tell you the best thing
I ever did do
I took off the old coat
And put on the new

I'll tell you the best thing
I ever did do
I took off the old coat
And put on the new

I had totally forgotten about this song. It is very old... I remember my parents singing it in church when I was a child... over 50 years ago.

I have never heard this song before!!! I love it because it has a mournful cadence, plus really good words, I might even put them on the prayer line. And the video has some gorgeous shots!!! The vanilla frosties are really, really good. Just the right amount of vanilla flavoring.

Ginny said...

You and Bob should each get a different flavor, so you can try it, but still have the chocolate, too!
