      Life’s Railroad To Heaven
      Life is like a railroad,
      With an engineer that’s brave.
      We must make the run successful,
      From the cradle to the grave.
      You will roll up the grades of trial,
      You will cross the bridge of strife.
      See that Christ is your conductor
      On the lightning train of life.
      Always mindful of obstructions.
      Do not falter, Do not fail.
      Keep your hand upon the throttle
      And your eye upon the rail.
