I have the news to bring
And that is why I sing
All my joy with you I’ll 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
Goin’ far beyond the sky
I’m gonna shout and sing until the bells gonna ring
When I bid this world goodbye

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

I’m gonna take a trip on that old Gospel Ship
Goin’ far beyond the sky
I’m gonna shout and sing until the bells gonna ring
When I bid this world goodbye

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 sailin’ through the air

I’m gonna take a trip on that old Gospel Ship
Goin’ far beyond the sky
I’m gonna shout and sing until the bells gonna ring
When I bid this world goodbye
