Chocolate Pi Lyr Add: Old Ship of Zion (spiritual) (38) Lyr Add: THE HAPPY SAILOR (from The Sacred Harp) 11 Nov 01


Very similar, also from The Sacred Harp:
THE HAPPY SAILOR

Come, tell of your ship and what is her name?
Oh, tell me, happy sailor!
Come, tell of your captain and what is his name?
Oh, tell me, happy sailor!

Chorus:

She's the old ship of Zion, hallelu!
And her captain, Judah's Lion, hallelujah.

Say, is her keel sound, her garner well stored?
Oh, tell me, happy sailor!
And will she leave other comrades on board?
Oh, tell me, happy sailor!
(Chorus)
She will land us safe on Canaan's bright shore,
Oh, glory, hallelujah!
We'll land with our friends, who've gone on before,
Oh, glory, hallelujah!
(Chorus)


Sacred Harp version, tune arr B.F. White, 1859, verses 2&3 C.J. Griggs, 1911. From http://fasola.org/index/L/388.html
