Olive Leaf-221, The Gospel Ship, No. 1
Note that the book from which this song was taken is currently out of print.
1. Long the gospel ship's been sailing,
Bound for Canaan's peaceful shore:
All who will set out for glory
Open to each faithful eye!
"Glory! glory! halelujah!
Hear the sailors loudly cry;
See the blissful port of glory
Hear the sailors loudly cry!
2. Thousands she has safely landed
Far beyond this earthly shore!
Thousands now are sailing thither,
Yet there's room for thousands more.
