Come and listen, won't you brother?
Have you heard or don't you know
There's a train that's bound for glory?
Will you ride it when it goes?

Have you made all preparations

Will you hear that whistle blowing?
Will you be there at your seat?

Has your ticket yet been purchased
For that glory bound train?
Oh, will you ride? Oh, will you ride?
Will you ride that train to glory by and by?

All the headlights will be gleaming, Jesus is the engineer
Will you ride this train to glory or will you be waiting here
When these golden bells start ringing? When he calls us all aboard
Will you have your ticket ready for your Savior and your Lord?

Has your ticket yet been purchased
For that glory bound train?
Oh, will you ride? Oh, will you ride?
Will you ride that train to glory by and by?

When you hear it in the distance, hear its mighty driver's roar
Just a little while to tarry then we'll walk those streets of gold
Will those loved ones who have journeyed just a little while ago
Meet you there at heaven's station when the last lone whistle blow?

Has your ticket yet been purchased
For that glory bound train?
Oh, will you ride? Oh, will you ride?
Will you ride that train to glory by and by?
