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 and hills and tunnels, never falter, never fail
Keep your hand upon the throttle and your eye upon the rail

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

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

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

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