Life's Railway to Heaven

Album: The Bluegrass Gospel

Lyrics

v1) Life is like a mountain railroad with an engineer so brave We must make the run successful from the cradle to the grave Watch the turn, the fill, the tunnel - never falter, never fail Keep your hand upon the throttle and your eye upon the rail

CH: Precious Savior, thou wilt guide us till we reach that golden shore Where the angels wait to join us in thy praise forevermore

v2) You must climb the hill of trials, you must cross the bridge of strife See that Christ is your conductor on this lightning train of life Always mindful of obstructions, do your duty, never quail Keep your hand upon the throttle and your eye upon the rail

CHORUS

v3) As you roll across the trestle spanning Jordan’s swelling tide You’ll behold the union depot into which your train will glide There you’ll meet the superintendent - God the Father, God the Son With a hearty, joyous greeting: Weary pilgrim, welcome home!

CHORUS
