People get ready, there's a train comin'

You don't need no baggage, you just get on board

All you need is faith to hear the diesels hummin'

You don't need no ticket you just thank the lord

People get ready, there's a train to Jordan

Picking up passengers from coast to coast

Faith is the key, open the doors and board them

There's hope for all among who love the most

There ain't no room for the hopeless sinner whom would hurt all mankind

Just to save his own

Have pity on those whose chances grow thinner

For there is no hiding place against the kingdoms throne

People get ready there's a train a-comin'

You don't need no baggage, just get on board

All you need is faith to hear the diesel hummin'

You don't need no ticket, just thank the lord.
