THE GOOD SHIP ZION




O come, O come! For staunch and strong,
The good ship Zion sails along;
O come and Join her happy crew,
And trust the Captain wise and true.
We bear his banner floating from the mast,
And hope through grace to reach our home at last;
Then join with our number; we're bound to the land of light;
We'll keep our course right onward through the stormy night.

Sailing, sailing over the sea of time,
Sailing, sailing, bound to the golden clime;
Sailing, sailing over the sea of time.
And sweetly now, though tempests blow,
We hear the home-bells chime.


Our chart will show when rocks are near,
The polar-star is shining clear;
When billows seem to overwhelm
We'll trust the Hand that holds the helm.
Then lift on high the banner of the cross,
The ship that bears it never suffers loss;
Obeying his orders, though gales of temptation come,
The Captain of salvation surely guides us home.

Sailing, sailing over the sea of time,
Sailing, sailing, bound to the golden clime;
Sailing, sailing over the sea of time.
And sweetly now, though tempests blow,
We hear the home-bells chime.


Beyond life's tossing, fitful sea,
The haven lies where we would be,
And soon, with rays of glory bright,
We'll hail the beacon's welcome light.
The good ship Zion, though the breakers roar,
Will safely land us on the morning shore;
Then over the surges we sail to the port of peace,
With joy we'll cast the anchor when the voyage shall cease.

Sailing, sailing over the sea of time,
Sailing, sailing, bound to the golden clime;
Sailing, sailing over the sea of time.
And sweetly now, though tempests blow,
We hear the home-bells chime.
