People Get Ready
The Impressions Lyrics


People get ready, there's a train a comin'
You don't need no baggage, you just get on board
All you need is faith, to hear the diesels hummin'
Don't need no ticket, you just thank the Lord

So people get ready, for the train to Jordan
Picking up passengers coast to coast
Faith is the key, open the doors and board 'em
There's hope for all, among those loved the most
There ain't no room for the hopeless sinner
Whom would hurt all mankind, just to save his own, believe me now
Have pity on those whose chances grow thinner
For there is no hiding place, against the kingdom's throne

So people get ready there's a train a comin'
You don't need no baggage, you just get on board
All you need is faith, to hear the diesels hummin'
Don't need no ticket, you just thank the Lord

People Get Ready

People get ready
There's a train a comin'
You don't need no baggage
You just get on board
All you need is faith
To hear the diesels hummin'
You don't need no ticket
You just thank the Lord

So people get ready
There'a a train to Jordan
Picking up passengers
Coast to coast
Faith is the key
Open the doors and board them
There's hope for all
Among those loved the most

There ain't no room
For the hopeless sinner
Who would hurt all mankind
Just to save his own
Have pity on those whose
Chances grow thinner
There's no hiding place
Against the Kingdom's throne

So people get ready
There's a train a comin'
You don't need no baggage
You just get on board
All you need is faith
To hear the diesels hummin'
Don't need no ticket
You just thank the Lord

I too have terminal cancer. The Doctors thought I might last about three months. That was more than four months ago. Now my faith is in the Lord not in Doctors. This song has pushed me further in the right direction to have faith in the Lord. Curtis told me to get ready. With both feet firmly on the ground, eyes streight ahead watching the tracks, and no baggage, I'm ready. Thanks for this posting, and I'm sure all of us who have a keen understanding of Mr. Mayfield's intent thank you as well.

@Corus Smith, thank you for your comment Sir. May Daniel McDermott’s soul “Rest In Peace”. Again Corus, much thanks.

I had colon cancer and almost died from it back in March of 2020 and I was positive through the whole deal and I pulled through . So that's what I'm saying is to stay positive and don't let no negativity come in the way because we the Lords chosen people and we have that power within us to stand strong . The problem is that we let this world and situations get a hold of us and we gotta quit robbing ourselves of strength . Our bodies react well to positive thoughts and that is a fact @

Dan, its obvious that we will all make it to the other side. Faith in Jesus Christ is needed to make this journey without any fear. Thanks.

Thats the wisest choice you could've ever made because life is all about giving the most high all the praise ! Shalawam and hopefully you'll have alot more years to praise Lord Yahawah

1966.  Army Basic Training.  I started singing this song while on a 20 mile march.  A lot of fellow soldiers joined in.  The Drill Sergeants didn't stop us so we sang the whole march through.  It was a good night.
