The Old Ship of Zion  Misc. Gospel

I WAS [D] STANDING ON THE [G] BANKS OF THE [D] RIVER
LOOKING OUT OVER LIFE�S TROUBLED [A7] SEA
WHEN I [D] SAW THAT OLD [G] SHIP WAS [D] SAILING
IT WAS THE OLD SHIP OF [A7] ZION I [D] SEE
IT�S [D] HULL WAS [G] BENT AND [D] BATTERED
FROM THE STORMS OF LIFE I COULD [A7] SEE
WAVES WERE [D] ROUGH BUT THE [G] OLD SHIP WAS [D] STEADY
IS THAT THE OLD SHIP OF [A7] ZION I [D] SEE?

AT THE [D] STERN OF THE [G] SHIP STOOD THE [D] CAPTAIN
I COULD HEAR AS HE CALLED OUT MY [A7] NAME
GET ON [D] BOARD , IT�S THE [G] OLD SHIP OF [D] ZION
IT WILL NEVER PASS [A7] THIS WAY [D] AGAIN
AS I [D] STEP ON [G] BOARD, I�LL BE [D] LEAVING
ALL MY SORROWS AND TRIALS [A7] BEHIND
I�LL BE [D] SAFE WITH [G] JESUS THE [D] CAPTAIN
SAILING OUT ON THAT [A7] OLD SHIP OF [D] ZION
THE OLD SHIP OF ZION �G�
I WAS [G] STANDING ON THE [C] BANKS OF THE [G] RIVER

IT�S [G] HULL WAS [C] BENT AND [G] BATTERED
FROM THE STORMS OF LFE I COULD [D] SEE
