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

So 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 hope for all among His chosen ones

There ain't no room for the hopeless sinner
Who would hurt all mankind just to save his own
Believe me now, have pity
On those whose chances grow thinner
But there's no hiding place against the kingdoms throne

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