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 those diesels humming
You don't need no ticket, you just thank the Lord

People get ready, for the train to Jordan
Picking up passengers from coast-to-coast
Faith is key, open up the doors and board them
There's hope for all among the loved the most

But there ain't no room for the hopeless sinner
Who would hurt all mankind to save his own
Mave pity on those whose choices grow thinner
There's no hiding place from the kingdom's throne

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 those diesels humming
You don't need no ticket, you just thank the Lord
Thank the Lord
