      About "Life's Railway To Heaven"

      Lyrics for Merle Haggard & The Strangers - "Life's Railway To Heaven"

      Life is like a mountain railway
      With an engineer that's brave
      We must make the right connections
      From the cradle to the grave

      Watch the curves, the fill, the tunnels
      Never falter, never quail
      Keep your hand upon the throttle
      And your eyes upon the rail

      Blessed Savior, Thou will guide us
      Till we reach that blissful shore
      Where the angels wait to join us
      In Thy praise for ever more

      You will roll up grades of trial
      You will cross the bridge of strife
      See that Christ is your conductor
      Of this lightning train of life

      Always mindful of obstructions
      Do your duty, never fail
      Keep your hand upon the throttle
      And your eyes upon the rail

      Blessed Savior, Thou will guide us
      Till we reach that blissful shore
      Where the angels wait to join us
      In Thy praise for ever more

      You will often find obstructions
      Look for storms of wind and rain
      On a fill, or curve, or trestle
      They will almost ditch your train

      Put your trust alone in Jesus
      Never falter, never fail
      Keep your hand upon the throttle
      And your eyes upon the rail

      Blessed Savior, Thou will guide us
      Till we reach that blissful shore
      Where the angels wait to join us
      In Thy praise for ever more

      As you roll across the trestle
      Spanning Jordan's swelling tide
      You behold the Union Depot
      Into which your train will drive

      There you'll meet the Superintendent
      God, the Father, God, the Son
      With the hearty, joyous plaudit
      Weary pilgrims, welcome home

      Blessed Savior, Thou will guide us
      Till we reach that blissful shore
      Where the angels wait to join us
      In Thy praise for ever more
