I have good news to bring
And that is why I sing,
All my joys with you I will share.
Well I'm gonna take a trip
On the old gospel ship
And go sailing through the air.

Refrain:
Well I'm gonna take a trip
On the old gospel ship;
I'm going far beyond the sky.
Well I'm gonna shout and sing,
Until heavens ring,
That's I'm bidding this world goodbye.

Refrain:
Oh I can scarecely wait,
I know I'll not be late.
For I'll spend all my time in prayer
And when my ship comes in,
I will leave this world of sin
And go sailing through the air.

Refrain:
Well I'm gonna take a trip
On the old gospel ship;
I'm going far beyond the sky.
Well I'm gonna shout and sing,
Until heavens ring,
As I'm bidding this world goodbye.

If you are ashamed of me,
You've got no cause to be
What we've got, I ain't ???
It's too much fault you find,
You'll sure be left behind,
I'll go sailing through the air.

Refrain:
Well I'm gonna take a trip
On the old gospel ship;
I'm going far beyond the sky.
Well I'm gonna shout and sing,
Until heavens bring,
As I'm bidding this world goodbye.
As I'm bidding this world goodbye.
