Old Ship of Zion (by Ronald Hinson)

She's a big old ship and she's sitting mighty low in the water
'Cause she's been on her maiden voyage
Ever since the blood of Calvary bought her
She's weathered violent storms
Some passengers jumped overboard and drowned
But she's not just some Titanic
She's the church and she's not going down

Sail on old ship of Zion brave what lurks in a cold dark night
Sail on old ship of Zion till you see that beacon light
Sail on old ship of Zion He's on board you're not alone
Sail on till you hear the Captain
Say Land's in sight you've made it home

This ship was launched from a hill outside Jerusalem
Caught a brand new gust of wind
When it breezed through the upper room
Rode out a storm with a jail cell song at midnight
What makes you think she's gonna sink
In some modern day typhoon

Sail on old ship of Zion He's on board your not alone
Sail on till you hear the Captain
Say land's in sight you've made it home

Sail on old ship of Zion
Sail on old ship of Zion
Sail on old ship of Zion
He's on board and I can't wait to hear Him say
Church you've made it home
