The great titanic

Oh they built ship Titanic to sall the ocean blue
And they thought they had a ship that the water would never go thru
But the Lord's Almighty hand knew that ship would never land
It was sad when great ship went down

    It was sad - It was sad
    It was sad when the great ship went down
    Husbands and wives, little children lost therir lives
    It was sad when that great ship went down

Oh, they sailed from England and were almost to the shore
When the rich refused to associate with the poor
So they put them down below where they were the first to go
It was sad when the great ship went down

 * Refrain

The boat was full of sin, and the sides about to burst
When the captain shouted, a-women and children first
Oh, the captain tried to wire, but the lines were all on fire
It was sad when the great ship went down

 * Refrain

Oh, they swung the lifeboats out o'er the deep and ragin' sea
When the band struck up with a-nearer My God to thee
Little children wept and cried as the waves swept o'er the side
It was sad when the great ship went down

 * Refrain
