The ToneWay® Project: helping people play music


Gospel Ship

Chorus
I'm gonna take a trip on that old gospel ship
Going far beyond the sky
I'm gonna shout and sing until the bells will ring
When I bid this world goodbye

I have good news to bring, and that is why I sing
All my joys with you I'll share
I'm going to take a trip on that old gospel ship
And go sailing through the air

I can scarcely wait, I know I won't be late
I'll spend all my time in prayer
And when the ship comes in, I'll leave this world of sin
And go sailing through the air

If you are ashamed of me, you ought not to be
Yes, you'd better have a care
If too much fault you find, you'll sure be left behind
While I'm sailing through the air
