Refrain:
It's the old ship of Zion,
it's the old ship of Zion,
It's 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 There's no danger in the water,
there's no danger in the water,
There's 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]

5 It will take us home to Glory,
it will take us home to Glory,
It will take us home to Glory,
get on board, get on board. [Refrain]
