Gospel Ship

Gospel Ship

I have good news to bring and that is why I sing
All my joy with you I will share
I'm gonna take a trip on that old gospel ship
And go sailin' through the air

   I'm gonna take a trip on that old gospel ship
   I'm going far beyond the sky
   I'm gonna shout and sing until the bells do ring
   When I go sailing through the sky

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

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