Refrain:
O my good Lord, Show me the way,
O my good Lord, Show me the way,
O my good Lord, Show me the way,
Enter the chariot, travel along.

1 Noah sent out a mourning dove,
Enter the chariot, travel along'
Which brought back a token of a heavenly love,
Enter the chariot, travel along. [Refrain]

2 Goin' to serve my Lord while I have breath,
Enter the chariot, travel along;
So I can see Him after death,
Enter the chariot, travel along. [Refrain]

3 When I get to Heav'n and get on my shoes,
Enter the chariot, travel along;
Goin' to fly about Heav'n and tell the news,
Enter the chariot, travel along. [Refrain]
