Lyrics:

I'm on a Jesus train
I'm on a Jesus train
I'm on a Jesus train

Headed for
Headed for
Headed for the city of ?God?

Standing on the platform
Awed by the power
I feel the power of love
Feel the hand upon my shoulder
?Run? and come ?on board?

I'm on a Jesus train
I'm on a Jesus train
I'm on a Jesus train

Headed for
Headed for
Headed for the city of ?God?

Standing on the platform
Locomotive throbbing
I'm drawn to that open door
?feel the wonder of a child ? trying to? ? stepping up the ??

I'm on a Jesus train
I'm on a Jesus train
I'm on a Jesus train

Headed for
Headed for
Headed for the city of ?God?

I'm on a Jesus train
I'm on a Jesus train
I'm on a Jesus train

Headed for
Headed for
Headed for the city of ?God?

Headed for
Headed for
Headed for the city of ?God?

Headed for
Headed for
Headed for the city of ?God?
