WHAT ship is this,
That shall take up all home.
O, glory hallelujah, &c.
It’s the old ship of Zion, hallelujah, &c.
Do you think she will be able
To take us all home; O glory hallelujah.
King Jesus is her captain, hallelujah, &c.
She has landed many thousands,
She’ll land as many more, O glory hallelujah;
She will land them over Jordan, hallelujah.
Methinks her sails,
Are hoisted high, O glory hallelujah &c.
She is making for the harbour, hallelujah.
Come along, come along,
And let us go home, O glory hallelujah,
Our home is over Jordan, hallelujah, &c.
If you get there
Before I do, O glory hallelujah,
Tell all my friends I’m coming, hallelujah.
