You Are Traveling On A Railway


You are traveling on a railway,
Winding through this maze of life,
Climbing up the hills of trial,
Into vales of sin and strife;
But there’s one who knows the journey,
He can surely take you through;
Jesus knows the way to glory,
He will safely carry you.

Refrain
Jesus, Savior, blessed Keeper,
Guide us on to Heav’n above;
Where the saints throughout the ages
Will unite in songs of love.

Curves will meet you as you journey,
You will meet with wrecks of time;
You will cross the bridge of sadness,
You will reach some heights sublime.
Never fear, for Christ is with you,
And He knows the way so plain;
Keep your eye on your dear Savior,
He will banish fear and pain. [Refrain]

Wind and rain some days will hinder,
Skies will darken, sickness come;
You will want to travel freely
To a friend or heav’nly home;
Put your trust in Christ the Savior,
Well He knows this line and rail;
He will never leave you lonely
For His love will never fail. [Refrain]

You will cross the bridge of mercy
And the river of delight,
You will climb the hills supernal,
You shall gain the hills of light;
Soon the home so freely given
Will be seen on glory’s shore;
You have reached the heav’nly station,
Ne’er to leave forevermore. [Refrain]
