People get ready
There's a train a-coming
You don't need no baggage
You just get on board
All you need is some faith
To hear the diesel humming
Don't need a ticket
You just thank the Lord

There ain't no room
For the hopeless sinner
Who would hurt all mankind
Just to save his own
Have pity on those
Whose chance is growin' thinner
There's no hiding place
Against the Kingdom's throne

People get ready
There's a train a-coming
You don't need a ticket
You just thank the Lord
