Life’s Railway to Heaven

by Charlie D Tilman v 1950

Verse 1
Life Is Like A Mountain Railroad
With An Engineer, That Is Brave
We Must Make, The Run Successful
From The Cradle Unto The Grave.
Watch The Curves, The Fills, The Tunnels
Never Falter Never Fail
Keep Your Hands, Upon The Throttle,
And Your Eye Upon The Rail.

Verse 2
As You Roll Across The Trestle
Spanning Jordan’s Swelling Tide
You 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 Welcome
Weary Pilgrim, Welcome Home.

Blessed Savior Thy Will Guide Us
Till We Reach That Other Shore
Where The Angels Wait To Join Us
In Thy Praise For-ever More.
