THE SHIP OF FAME




What ship is this you’re sailing in,
This wondrous ship of fame?
The ship is called the
“Church of God”
And Christ’s the Captain’s name.

Come join our happy crew!
We’re bound for Canaan’s shore!
The Captain says,
“There’s room for you
And room for millions more.”



What wages do you get on board
This ship that you command?
We’ve love and joy
and peace and grace
And glory in the end.

Come join our happy crew!
We’re bound for Canaan’s shore!
The Captain says,
“There’s room for you
And room for millions more.”



And what’s the crew
that sails with you
On board this ship so grand?
The saints of God
all washed in blood
And under Christ’s command.

Come join our happy crew!
We’re bound for Canaan’s shore!
The Captain says,
“There’s room for you
And room for millions more.”



Do you not fear the stormy seas
Your bark may overwhelm?
You need not fear—
the Lord is near,
And Christ is at the helm!

Come join our happy crew!
We’re bound for Canaan’s shore!
The Captain says,
“There’s room for you
And room for millions more.”



Heave out your boat
and come on board;
You say there’s plenty room;
The Captain says,
“You’re welcome now;
Make no delay, but come.”

Come join our happy crew!
We’re bound for Canaan’s shore!
The Captain says,
“There’s room for you
And room for millions more.”



Then hoist the sails
and catch the breeze,
And soon the journey’s o’er.
The ship will land you safe at last
On Canaan’s happy shore.

Come join our happy crew!
We’re bound for Canaan’s shore!
The Captain says,
“There’s room for you
And room for millions more.”
