The Railroad Ride To Heaven
My model railroad stretched about
Through every room and floor.
I strived to make the whole layout
Look better than before.
The scenery was precisely placed-
Each tree a work of art.
With dilligence the task I faced-
An expression of my heart.
Then all at once the engine roared;
The time at last was near,
And as it stalled I climbed aboard
And rolled away from here.
My mother wept to see I'd gone;
She couldnot understand
Why God was pleased to bear me Home
Aboard His gentle hand.
Alas, my Mother, I'll return
With Christ one shining day.
My Engineer is wise I've learned;
His eyes see every way.
He knows what lurks around each bend;
What obstacle; what snare.
He is my Savior and my Friend.
I know He truly cares.
We'll come again to take you back.
You'll ride up front with me.
We'll glide along God's railroad track
For all Eternity.
