I stood on da ribber ob Jerdon
To see dat ship come sailin‘ ober.
I stood on da ribber ob Jerdon
To see dat ship sail by.

When you see dat ship come sailin‘ ober.
Shout! Glory Hallelujah!
When you see dat ship sail by.

O sister you bettuh be ready
To see dat ship come sailin‘ ober.
O brother you bettuh be ready
To see dat ship sail by.
O preacher you bettuh be ready
To see dat ship come sailin‘ ober.
O deacon you bettuh be ready
To see dat ship sail by.

O moaner don’t you weep
When you see dat ship come sailin‘ ober.
Shout! Glory Hallelujah!
When you see dat ship sail by.

When you see dat ship come sailin‘ ober.
Shout! Glory Hallelujah!
When you see dat ship sail by.
