Life’s Railway to Heaven

(G,*B 4/4 Fast) by Charlie D Tilman v 1950

Life Is Like A Mountain Railroad

With An Engineer, That Is Brave

We Must Make, The Run Successful

Never Falter Never Fail

Keep Your Hands, Upon The Throttle,

As You Roll Across The Trestle

There You’ll Meet The Superintendent,

God, The Father, God The Son,

With A Hearty, Joyous Welcome

Weary Pilgrim, Welcome Home.

Where The Angels Wait To Join Us, In Thy Praise For-ever More.
