1 Oh, what ship is this that will take us all home?
O glory! Hallelujah!
‘Tis the old ship of Zion, Hallelujah!
‘Tis the old ship of Zion, Hallelujah!

2 Come alone, come along, and let us go home!
O glory! Hallelujah!
Our home is over Jordan, Hallelujah!
Our home is over Jordan, Hallelujah!

3 Do you think she will be able to take us all home?
O glory! Hallelujah!
No doubt she will be able, Hallelujah!
No doubt she will be able, Hallelujah!

4 She has landed many thousands, and can land as many more,
O glory! Hallelujah!
She has landed them in heaven, Hallelujah!
She has landed them in heaven, Hallelujah!
