Shirley Verrett - Life's Railway to Heaven

English

Life's Railway to Heaven

Life is like a mountain railway,
With an engineer that’s brave;
We must make the run successful,
From the cradle to the grave.
Watch the curves, the fills, the tunnels;
Never falter, never fail;
Keep your hands upon the throttle,
And your eyes upon the rail.
 
Blessed Savior, Thou wilt guide us,
Till we reach that blissful shore,
Where the angels wait to join us
In Thy praise forevermore.
 
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 the hearty, joyous plaudit,
“Weary Pilgrim, welcome home.”
 
Blessed Savior, Thou wilt guide us,
Till we reach that blissful shore,
Where the angels wait to join us
In Thy praise forevermore.
