Is this the song you want?


I was standing by the banks of a river
Looking out over lifes troubled seas
When I saw an old ship that was sailing
Is that the old ship of Zion I see

It's hull was bent and battered
From the storms of life I could see
Waves were rough but that old ship kept sailing
Is that the old ship of Zion I see

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

As I step on board I'll be leaving
All my troubles and trials behind
I'll be safe with Jesus the captain
Sailing out on the old ship of Zion

Amuna, Here are more lyrics to a song called
"The Old Ship Of Zion" , Rita
1. O what ship is this that comes sailing by,
O glory halle hallelujah!
'Tis the old ship of Zion, hallelujah!
'Tis the old ship of Zion, hallelujah!
2. And will this ship be able to carry us safe thro'
O glory halle hallelujah!
Yes, Jesus is her captain, hallelujah!
Yes, Jesus is her captain, hallelujah!

3. All her passengers will land on the bright eternal shore,
O glory halle hallelujah!
And they'll shout their sufferings over, hallelujah!
And they'll shout their sufferings over, hallelujah!

4. She has landed many thousands, and will land so many more,
O glory halle hallelujah!
She will land them over Jordan, hallelujah!
She will land them over Jordan, hallelujah!

Your search is over....lol Great song. One of my all time favorites by my ALL time favorite group....enjoy.

THE OLD SHIP OF ZION IS SAILING FOR HOME
DEFYING THE TEMPEST AND RIDING THE FOAM
ON BOARD CRIES THE CAPTAIN OH MAKE NO DELAY
THE OLD SHIP OF ZION IS SAILING AWAY

THE OLD SHIP OF ZION'S STILL SAILING TODAY
AND GATHERING PILGRIMS ALONG ON LIFE'S WAY
SHE'S LANDING HER MILLIONS AND STILL LANDING MORE
THE SAVED OF ALL AGES ON SOME FAIR NEW SHORE

{chorus}

THE OLD SHIP OF ZION UNFAILING
AND OVER LIFE'S OCEANS STILL SAILING
DEFYING THE TEMPEST SHE'S RIDING THE FOAM
THE OLD SHIP OF ZION IS SAILING FOR HOME


THE OLD SHIP OF ZION OH WONDERFUL SITE
HER BEACONS ARE SHINING FAR OUT IN THE NIGHT
SWEET MUSIC IS RINGING ITS ECHOES PROLONG
WHILE MILLIONS ARE SINGING A GLAD HAPPY SONG


THE OLD SHIP IS SAILING FOR LIFE'S OTHER SIDE
THE MASTER OF OCEANS HER VOYAGE WILL GUIDE
THE WINDS AND THE WATERS OBEYING THE LORD
NO SHIP CAN GO DOWN WITH THE MASTER ON BOARD
