K:D Life is [D]like a mountain railway, With an [G]engineer that's [D]brave; We must [D]make the run successful, From the [E]cradle to the [A]grave; Watch the [D]curves, the fills, the tunnels; Never [G]falter, never [D]fail; Keep your [D]hands upon the throttle, And your eyes upon the rail. {i}Refrain:{/i} {i}Blessed [G]Savior, Thou wilt [D]guide us,{/i} {i}Till we reach that blissful [A]shore,{/i} {i}Where the [D]angels wait to [G]join us{/i} {i}In Thy [D]praise forever-more.{/i} You will [D]roll up grades of trial; You will [G]cross the bridge of [D]strife; See that Christ is your con-ductor On this [E]lightning train of [A]life; Always [D]mindful of ob-struction, Do your [G]duty, never [D]fail; Keep your hands upon the throttle, And your eyes upon the rail. {i}Refrain{/i} You will [D]often find obstructions, Look for [G]storms and wind and [D]rain; On a fill, or curve, or trestle They will [E]almost ditch your [A]train; Put your [D]trust alone in Jesus, Never [G]falter, never [D]fail; Keep your hands upon the throttle, And your eyes upon the rail. {i}Refrain{/i} As you [D]roll across the trestle, Spanning [G]Jordan's swelling [D]tide, You be-hold the Union Depot Into [E]which your train will [A]glide; There you'll [D]meet the Sup'rin-tendent, God, the [G]Father, God the [D]Son, With the hearty, joyous plaudit, "Weary Pilgrim, welcome home." {i}Refrain{/i}
