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 for curves and hills and valleys  Never falter never fail
keep your hands upon the throttle 
And your eye upon the rail

 Blessed Savior, 
Thou wilt guide us
Till we reach that blissful shore
 Where the angels wait to join us
In God's 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 a hearty joyous greeting  Weary pilgrim, welcome home

 Blessed Savior, 
Thou wilt guide us
Till we reach that blissful shore
 Where the angels wait to join us
In God's praise forevermore

 Blessed Savior, 
Thou wilt guide us
Till we reach that blissful shore
 Where the angels wait to join us
In God's praise forevermore
 Where the angels wait to join us
In God's praise forevermore

So turn it on, turn it up
And sing along
