lifes railway to heaven

Johnny Cash

 Life is like a mountain railway with an Engineer that's brave
we must make the run successful from the cradle to the grave
 heed the curves the hills the tunnels, never falter, never fail
keep your hand upon the throttle and your eye upon the rail
(CHORUS:)  Blessed Savior, Thou wilt guide us
till we reach that blissful shore
 where the angels wait to join us in God's praise forevermore
verse 2
As we roll along the mainline, there'll be storms and there'll be night
there'll be sidetracks unexpected on the left and on the right
but with the straight always before us and our hearts upon the prize
there'll be no disembarkation until we reach paradise
