Representative Text

1 Roll on the gospel chariot,
And crush out Satan’s plans,
The Savior calls, “Come view my wounds,
My feet and bleeding hands;
For you I bore the cruel cross,
Fro you the death of shame,
For you the painful crown of thorns,
For you the triumph came.”

Refrain:
Get on the gospel chariot,
Yes, get on board tonight,
Bells are ringing, train is waiting,
‘Twill soon be out of sight.
Oh, get on the gospel chariot,
Yes, get on board tonight,
The bells are ringing, train is waiting,
‘Twill soon be out of sight.

2 Roll on the gospel chariot,
The gate stands open wide,
Come, weary, doubting sinner, come,
For you the Savior died;
With bated breath the angels wait,
All heaven bids you come,
They open wide the golden age,
Here’s pardon, rest, and home. [Refrain]

3 Roll on the gospel chariot,
And call the wand’rers in,
The Savior died, and rose again,
To save a world from sin;
Come, sing the old, old story,
And make the anthems ring,
We’ll join the throng, and chant the song
Of triumph to our King. [Refrain]
