THE OLD SHIP OF ZION "D"


I WAS [G] STANDING ON THE [C] BANKS OF THE [G] RIVER
LOOKING OUT OVER LIFE'S TROUBLED [D] SEA
WHEN I [G] SAW THAT OLD [C] SHIP WAS [G] SAILING
IT WAS THE OLD SHIP OF [D] ZION I [G] SEE
 
IT'S [G] HULL WAS [C] BENT AND [G] BATTERED 
FROM THE STORMS OF LFE I COULD [D] SEE
WAVES WERE [G] ROUGH BUT THE [C] OLD SHIP WAS [G] STEADY
IS THAT THE OLD SHIP OF [D] ZION I [G] SEE?
 
AT THE [G] STERN OF THE [C] SHIP STOOD THE [G] CAPTAIN 
I COULD HEAR AS HE CALLED OUT MY [D] NAME 
GET ON [G] BOARD , IT'S THE [C] OLD SHIP OF [G] ZION
IT WILL NEVER PASS [D] THIS WAY [G] AGAIN
 
AS I [G] STEP ON [C] BOARD, I'LL BE [G] LEAVING 
ALL MY SORROWS AND TRIALS [D] BEHIND
I'LL BE [D] SAFE WITH [G] JESUS THE [G] CAPTAIN
SAILING OUT ON THAT [D] OLD SHIP OF [G] ZION
