I remember a time back in the big city near my home
To the clock toll in morning
Hear the sound of a gospel choir singing soft and low
On a rainy day the sun was dawning

But it's been a long, long time
Since I've heard the rhyme
Of a time and season hidden in the past
And the days are growing harder
And time is growing shorter
Brother hating brothers spreading fast

We got to get on the new train, and ride
We gotta find our way to freedom
Get on the new train, and ride
Buy our ticket for a brand new season

Trippin' down south, in the Easter time
See the folks come out from worship
Everyone talkin' 'bout the glories of the resurrection
All of them thinking that they're perfect

Well here comes a helpless man
Who's down and needs a hand
And the will of Christ is done by one from prison
So he gets a hand from one
He is condemned by some
But divine love we all have if it's he lays on them

He wants to get on the new train, and ride
Said he's gonna find this way to freedom

He wants to get on the new train, and ride
Buy this way to a brand new season

As I sit back looking on my history
See a house with children playing, and love strong
And Mama sittin' cross-leg tell me I must be my brother's keeper
I'll take my strength from Daddy's song

And you know I love what I see
'Cause it's taught a lot to me
Made me strong and help this boy understand (yes it has)
That the world is here for giving
And life is here for living
Let the choir sing and let me say it with the band

We've got to get on the new train, and ride
We gotta help us find a way to freedom
We got to get on the new train, and ride
Buy our ticket for a brand new season
We've got to get on the new train, and ride
Come on and help us find out way to freedom
We've got to get on the new train, and ride
Come on and help us find a way to a season

Alright
Take me way down home now
Sho' nuff I'm goin' (south?) now
Mmm mm mm...
