Take me in your lifeboat, take me in your lifeboat
It will stand the raging storm
Take me in your lifeboat, take me in your lifeboat
It will bear my spirit home

Now, come brothers and sisters and don't fall asleep
But pray night and day or you'll sink in the deep
Fathers and mothers are praying so well
Saying Lord won't you take us in your lifeboat?

Take me in your lifeboat, take me in your lifeboat
It will stand the raging storm
Take me in your lifeboat, take me in your lifeboat
It will bear my spirit home

The clouds are so heavy, the winds are so loud
The thunders are rolling, bursting the clouds
They pray to their sinner mates for what they have done
They took the dying sinner in their lifeboat

Take me in your lifeboat, take me in your lifeboat
It will stand the raging storm
Take me in your lifeboat, take me in your lifeboat
It will bear my spirit home
