“What Kind of Crowns Do the Angels Wear”


"What kind of crowns do the angels wear? The angels wear the golden crown, the golden crown, I'm bound to rest, I'm bound to rest... bound to rest with God." "What kind of robe do the angels wear?" "What kind of slippers do the angels wear?"


The key line of these verses obviously float, but the form makes it an independent song. Barely. - RBW
