2. It's hull was bent and battered,
From the storms of life, I could see;
Waves were rough, but that old ship was sailing,
Is that the old Ship of Zion I see?
3. 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.
4. 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.
