People get ready there's a train a-comin'
You don't need no baggage you just get on board
All you need is faith to hear diesels a-humming
You don't need no ticket you just thank the Lord

Yeah yeah yeah
People get ready for the train to Jordan
Picking up passengers from coast to coast
Faith is the key open the doors and board them
There's room for all of the loved and lost
Yeah yeah

Now there ain't no room for the hopeless sinner
Who's hard on mankind just to save his own
Have pity on those whose chances are thinner
'Cause there's no hiding place from the Kingdom's Throne

Oh people get ready there's a train a-comin'
You don't need no baggage you just get on board
All you need is faith to hear diesels a-humming
Don't need no ticket you just thank the Lord
