Life is like a mountain railroad, with an engineer that’s brave; We must make the run successful from the cradle to the grave. Watch the curves, the fills, the tunnels; never falter, never quail. Keep your hand upon the throttle and your eye upon the rail.
You will roll up grades of trial; you will cross the bridge of strife. See that Christ is your conductor on this lightning trip of life. Always mindful of obstruction, do your duty; never fail. Keep your hand upon the throttle, and your eye upon the rail.
Refrain: blessed Savior, please guide us, till we reach that blissful shore; Where the angels wait to join us, in Your praise forever more.
