All God's Chillun Got Wings is a Negro spiritual song. "Chillun" is an old-fashioned dialect word for "children". (Robeson sings it as "children" in his recording, although the printed lyrics say "chillun".)[citation needed]

Its title inspired the Eugene O'Neill play of All God's Chillun Got Wings.[1]
