1 Where, O where is yon vessel going,
See her now on the waters blue;
All her sails in the breeze are floating,
Hear the song of her gallant crew.

Refrain:
Haste on board, ‘tis the Captain calling;
We are waiting, we are waiting;
Precious souls we are bearing onward,
Joyful to the port of peace,
Joyful to the blessed port of peace.

2 Millions now to that vessel flocking,
Young and old on the deck they stand;
Yet there’s room and a hearty welcome,
Passage free to the promised land. [Refrain]

3 Praise the Lord, ‘tis the old ship Zion,
Jesus is her Captain’s name;
Colors bright from her mast are flying,
We have heard of her noble fame. [Refrain]

4 Quick! on board, she has weigh’d her anchor,
Quick! on board, for the wind is fair;
World, adieu, we are sailing onward,
Heaven’s our home, and our hearts are there. [Refrain]
