Take me in your lifeboat, oh
Take me in your lifeboat
It will stand the raging storm
Take me in your lifeboat, oh
Take me in your lifeboat
It will bear my spirit home.

Now come brothers and sisters and don't fall asleep
We'll pray night and day or we'll sink in the deep
Fathers and mothers are prayin' so well
The Lord won't you take me in your lifeboat.

The clouds are so heavy the winds are so loud
The thunder are rollin' and burstin' the clouds
They pray to their sinner mates for what they have done
They took the dyin' sinner in their lifeboat.
