John Denver — People Get Ready lyrics

People get ready, there抯 a train acoming
You don抰 need no baggage, you just get on board
All you need is faith to hear those diesels humming
You don抰 need no ticket, you just thank the Lord

People get ready, for the train to Jordan
Picking up passengers from coast-to-coast
Faith is key, open up the doors and board them
There抯 hope for all among the loved the most

But there ain抰 no room for the hopeless sinner
Who would hurt all mankind to save his own
Have pity on those whose choices grow thinner
There抯 no hiding place from the kingdom抯 throne

People get ready, there抯 a train acoming
You don抰 need no baggage, you just get on board
All you need is faith to hear those diesels humming
You don抰 need no ticket, you just thank the Lord
Thank the Lord
