What ship is this that's landed at the shore?
Oh, Glory Hallelujah!
'Tis the old ship of Zion, Hallelujah!
'Tis the old ship of Zion, Hallelujah!

Is the mast all sure, and the timber all sound?
Oh, Glory, Hallelujah!
She's built of Gospel timber, Hallelujah!
She's built of Gospel timber, Hallelujah!

What kind of men does she have on board?
Oh, Glory Hallelujah!
They're all true-hearted soldiers, Hallelujah!
They're all true-hearted soldiers, Hallelujah!

What kind of captain does she have on board?
Oh, Glory Hallelujah!
King Jesus is the captain, Hallelujah!
King Jesus is the captain, Hallelujah!

Oh, do you think she will be able to land us on the shore?
Oh, Glory Hallelujah!
I think she will be able, Hallelujah!
I think she will be able, Hallelujah!

She has landed over thousands, and can land as many more
Oh, Glory Hallelujah!
She'll land us on Canaan bright shore, Hallelujah!
She'll land us on Canaan bright shore, Hallelujah!
