Heavenly Aeroplane

(Bob Nolan)

 

Sing Along with the Sons of the Pioneers

 

One of these nights about twelve o’clock,

This ol’ world’s gonna reel and rock.

Sinners will tremble and cry with pain

And the Lord will come and get us in His aeroplane. 

 

Oh, ye weary of every tribe,

Get yo’ ticket for an aer’plane ride.

I see the Lord, He’s a comin’ for to reign

And take us all to glory in His aeroplane.

 

You may talk about your rides in an aut’mobile,

The lightning speed of the motor’s wheel;

We’ll break all records as we upward fly

In the aeroplane joy ride thru the sky.

 

Oh, ye weary of every tribe,

Get yo’ ticket for an aer’plane ride.

I see the Lord, He’s a comin’ for to reign

And take us all to glory in His aeroplane.

 

There’ll be no punctures on the muddy road,

No broken wheels from overload,

No sparks to trouble or cause delay

As we soar in rapture on the Milky Way.

 

Oh, ye weary of every tribe,

Get yo’ ticket for an aer’plane ride.

I see the Lord, He’s a comin’ for to reign

And take us all to glory in His aeroplane.

 

You gotta get ready if you take this ride,

Quit all yo’ meanness and humble yo’ pride,

Furnish a life both bright and clean

And a good grade of oil for the flyin’ machine.

 

Oh, ye weary of every tribe,

Get yo’ ticket for an aer’plane ride.

I see the Lord, He’s a comin’ for to reign

And take us all to glory in His aeroplane.

 

When our journey’s done and we all sit down

At the marriage speech with the golden crown

We blend our voices in a handsome song

And sing His praise as the years roll on.

 

Oh, ye weary of every tribe,

Get yo’ ticket for an aer’plane ride.

I see the Lord, He’s a comin’ for to reign

And take us all to glory in His aeroplane.
