People Get Ready

Play

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 hummin'
Don't need no ticket
You just thank the Lord

People get ready
For the train to Jordan
Picking up passengers
Coast to coast
Faith is the key
To open the doors and board them
There's hope 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 grown thinner
For there's no hiding place
Against the Kingdom's throne

So 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 hummin'
Don't need no ticket
You just thank the Lord

You don't need no ticket
You just thank the Lord
