What ship is this you�re sailing in,
This wondrous ship of fame?
The ship is called the �Church of God�
And Christ�s the Captain�s name.
Come join our happy crew!
We�re bound for Canaan�s shore!
The Captain says, �There�s room for you
And room for millions more.�
What wages do you get on board
This ship that you command?
We�ve love and joy and peace and grace
And glory in the end.
And what�s the crew that sails with you
On board this ship so grand?
The saints of God all washed in blood
And under Christ�s command.
Do you not fear the stormy seas
Your bark may overwhelm?
You need not fear�the Lord is near,
And Christ is at the helm!
Heave out your boat and come on board;
You say there�s plenty room;
The Captain says, �You�re welcome now;
Make no delay, but come.�
Then hoist the sails and catch the breeze,
And soon the journey�s o�er.
The ship will land you safe at last
On Canaan�s happy shore.
