PEOPLE GET READY


People get ready, there's a train a-coming
You don't need no baggage, you just get on board
All you need is faith to hear the diesels humming
Don't need no ticket, you just thank the Lord!

People get ready for the train to Jordan
Picking up passengers from coast to coast
Faith is the key, open the doors and board them
There's room for all among those loved the most!

There ain't no room for the hopeless sinner
Who would hurt all mankind just to save his own
Have pity on those whose chances are thinner
Cause there's no hiding place from the Kingdom's Throne!

So people get ready for the train a-coming
Don't need no baggage, you just get on board
All you need is faith to hear the diesels humming
You don't need no ticket, just thank the Lord!
