( On "Higher Ground" The Blind Boys Of Alabama / Curtis Mayfield Cover )

People get ready, there's a train a-comin'
You don't need no baggage, you just get on board
All you need is faith to hear the diesel's hummin'
You don't need no ticket, you just thank the Lord

People get ready for the train to Jordan
Picking up passengers for coast to coast
Faith is the key, open up the doors and board them
There's hope for all among those loved the most

There ain't no room for the hopeless sinner whom would hurt all mankind
Just to save his own
Have pity on those whose chances grow thinner
Ain't no hiding place against the kingdom's throne

People get ready, there's a train a-comin'
Don't need no baggage, just get on board
All you need is faith to hear the diesel's hummin'
Don't need no ticket, you just thank the Lord.

I believe...
