Swave N. Deboner Seeking Easter Gospel songs! (38) RE: Seeking Easter Gospel songs! 02 Mar 05


Animaterra

I joined a Gospel trio last year, and the song, "The Robe of Calavary" was our debut on Easter Sunday.

Here are the lyrics:

His robe, His robe,
The robe of Calvary
Twas worn by my redeemer
Who lives eternaly.

Kings wear robes of gold and velvet
Soon their glory fades away
But the King of kings in heaven
Wore a homespun robe that day.

Soldiers gambled for His garment
While the sun turned dark above
But the men who crucified Him
Were forgiven by His love.

His robe, His robe,
The robe of calvary
Twas worn by my redeemer
Who lives eternaly.

Those who saw his robe knew torment
If they lived by sin and fault
But if they renounced the evil
They were welcome by the Lord.

Though it seems so plain and humble
There was fate in every thread
He who wore it lives forever
He has risen from the dead.

His robe, His robe,
The robe of calvary
Twas worn by my redeemer
Who lives eternaly (repeat to finish)

I searched the web for an audio file so you could hear it. Below is the only link I could find. It's not really the arrangement I would choose, but it will give you an idea of the melody and harmony parts. It really should be sung a little faster.
