(originally by The Impressions)
from Glory Road movie soundtrack
w/ Lyfe Jennings

Let me tell you now
People get ready, there's a train comin'
You don't need no baggage, you just get on board
All you need is faith to hear the diesel hummin'
You don't need no ticket, you just thank the lord

People get ready, there's a train to Jordan
Picking up passengers coast to coast
Faith is the key, open the doors and board them
There's hope for all among those loved the most

There ain't no room for the hopeless sinner
Who would hurt all mankind
Just to save his own
Leave me now
Have pity on those whose chances grow thinner
For there is no hiding place against the kingdoms throne

So people get ready there's a train comin'
You don't need no baggage, you just get on board
All you need is faith to hear the diesel hummin'
You don't need no ticket, you just thank the lord.
