People get ready
There's a train coming
Don't need no ticket
You can just step on board
All you need is a little faith
To hear diesels humming
We ain't got a handle baggage out
We can just thank the Lord

People get ready there's a train to Jordan
No need, no ticket, just step on board
All you need is faith to hear diesels humming
No need a ticket, just thank the Lord

Thank the Lord, thank the Lord
Thank the Lord, thank the Lord
Thank the Lord, thank the Lord
Thank the Lord, thank the Lord

You got to get ride in now 
The train is coming
You don't need no ticket
You can just step on board
But all you need is a little faith
You can hear diesels humming
You ain't even got to have no bags 
You can just get on board

People get ready there's a train to Jordan
There's a train coming, get on board
All you need is faith to hear diesels humming
You don't need no tickets, you just thank the Lord

Thank the Lord, thank the Lord
Thank the Lord, thank the Lord
Thank the Lord, thank the Lord
Thank the Lord, thank the Lord

Thank the Lord, thank the Lord
Thank the Lord, thank the Lord
Thank the Lord, thank the Lord
Thank the Lord, thank the Lord
