Whoo!
People, get ready, there's a train a-comin'
Don't need no baggage, you just get on board
All you need is faith to hear the diesel hummin'
Don't need no ticket, you just thank the Lord
People get ready
People get ready

People, get ready for the train to Jordan
Picking up passengers from coast to coast
Faith is the key, open the door and board her
'Cause there's hope for all among His loved the most
People get ready
People get ready
People get ready
People get ready

People, please get ready for the train of love. Doesn't cost you anything, all you do is get on board. The only giving is giving yourself. This is the last go-round, and if you miss this train I want you to know you've only got yourself to blame. You know, Sonny, I was takin' the same ride. The doors opened wide, for you, for you

There ain't no room for the hopeless sinner
Who'd hurt all mankind just to save his own
Have pity on those whose chances grow slimmer
'Cause there's no hiding place
There's no hiding place
There's no hiding place
There's no hiding place
'Cause his lovin' throne (People get ready)
On his lovin' throne (People get ready)

People, get ready, (People get ready)
For the train to Jordan (People get ready)
It's picking up passengers (People get ready)
Well, from coast to coast (People get ready)
Faith is the key, (People get ready)
Open the door and board her, Lord, Lord (People get ready)
'Cause there's peace for all (People get ready)
Among His loved the most (People get ready)
Well (Fade)
