Come all you broken hearted come
And lay your burden down
Come kings and queens, come royalty
Surrender up your crown

Come empty handed, come with nothing
Of your own to claim
Come naked, poor, come like a child
To ride the orphan train

Come ride, ride on the orphan train
Put your ear to the track, you can hear your name
Come ride, ride on the orphan train
It'll take you all the way home

The way is narrow, it is steep
That brings you to the door
But love awaits there to embrace
Your heart forevermore

Come ride, ride on the orphan train
Put your ear to the track, you can hear your name
Come ride, ride on the orphan train
It'll take you all the way home

Come you abandoned, you forsaken
Friendless and alone
Come refugees left homesick for
Some place you've never known

Here princes, paupers, criminals
And saints are all the same
No more or less than God's beloved
Child aboard this train

Come ride, ride on the orphan train
Put your ear to the track, you can hear your name
Come ride, ride on the orphan train
It'll take you all the way home

Come ride, ride on the orphan train
I put my ear to the track and I heard my name
Come ride, ride on the orphan train
It'll take us all the way home
