Refrain:
'Tis the old ship of Zion,
'tis the old ship of Zion,
'tis the old ship of Zion,
get on board, get on board.

1 It has landed many a thousand,
it has landed many a thousand,
it has landed many a thousand,
get on board, get on board. [Refrain]

2 Ain't no danger in the water,
ain't no danger in the water,
ain't no danger in the water,
get on board, get on board. [Refrain]

3 It was good for my dear mother,
it was good for my dear mother,
it was good for my dear mother,
get on board, get on board. [Refrain]

4 It was good for my dear father,
it was good for my dear father,
it was good for my dear father,
get on board, get on board. [Refrain]
