"Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in
the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord."

          I have good news to bring, and that is why I sing.
          All my joys with you I'll share;
          I'm going to take a trip in the good Old Gospel Ship
          And go sailing through the air.

            Chorus
            Oh, I'm "gonna" take a trip in the good Old Gospel Ship.
            I'm going far beyond the sky;
            Oh, I'm "gonna" shout and sing until the heavens ring,
            When I'm bidding this world goodbye.

          Oh, I can scarely wait, I know I'll not be late.
          For I'll spend my time in prayer;
          And when my ship comes in I will leave this world of sin
          And go sailing through the air.

            Chorus
            Oh, I'm "gonna" take a trip in the good Old Gospel Ship.
            I'm going far beyond the sky;
            Oh, I'm "gonna" shout and sing until the heavens ring,
            When I'm bidding this world goodbye.
