THAT OLD SHIP OF ZION

I was standing on the banks of the river
Looking out over life's troubled sea
When I saw that ole ship that was sailing
Is that the ole ship of Zion I see.

Its hull was bent and battered
From the storms of life I could see
Waves were rough but that ole ship kept sailing
Is that the ole ship of Zion I see.

At the stern of the ship stood the captain
I could hear as he called out my name
Get on board it's the ole ship of Zion
It will never pass this way again

As I step on board I'll be leaving
All my sorrows and heartaches behind
I'll be safe with Jesus the captain
Sailing out on the ole ship of Zion.

I was fifty three years old and NEVER had any man approached me about my soul,eternity, or even as much as invited me to any church.But PRAISE GOD,one day HE saw fit to send JESUS The Captain,sailing on the ole ship of zion,and HE too called out my name,and I got on board. I ant much of nothing,but tomorrow the 30th of April I'll be singing this song right before I preach on Hebrews 9:27 and Revelation 20:14. Title of message: (The Second Death Is one's CHOICE.) Please pray that souls will hear,and get on board the Ole Ship Of ZION. In CHRIST JESUS's PRECIOUS AND HOLY NAME,

I was blessed in 1992 by a new friend, who sang this song without music at a church singing. I was blessed again when God allowed us to be married in 1997. I wanted him to sing it again at our church, there were a few lines he wasn't sure of, been looking for the song. Thank you and God Bless.

Thank you so much for the lyrics to "Is That The Old Ship of Zion". My grandmother loved The Kingsmen who sang this song years ago in Accapella. I can remember going to her house and hearing this song. I now sing in a quartet and we're going to sing it next month in our church.

In Christ,

I am so glad to find this site! I thought of this song tonight in church at a remark our pastor made. We have a man in our church who has just started singing bass. I'm going to try to fit him into our trio to sing this song. Thanks so much!
