The line to Heaven by Christ was made,
With heavenly truth the rails are laid,
From Earth to Heaven the line extends,
And in eternal it ends.
Repentance is the station then,
Where passengers are taken in;
No fee is there for them to pay,
For Jesus is himself the way.
God's word is the first engineer,
It points the way to Heaven so clear,
Through tunnels dark and dreary here.
It does the way to glory cheer.
God's love the fire, his grace the steam,
Which drives the engine and the train;
All you who would to glory ride,
Must come to Christ, in him abide.
In first, and second, and third class,
Repentance, Faith, and Holiness,
You must the way to glory gain,
Or you with Christ can never reign.
Come then, poor sinner, now's the time,
At any station on the line,
If you repent, and turn from sin,
The train will stop and take you in.
If all these trains should by you pass
And you are found in neither class
When neither truth or fire or steam
Can make you willing to get in
The sinners you will weep at last
When heaven is lost and time is past
The heavenly trains are all gone by
Then sinners must forever die
When all these trains in heaven arrive
With all who did in Christ abide
How sweet their voices how they sing
And praise their great eternal king
The King Eternal on his throne
Announces that the trains are come
Their robes are ready to put on
And Jesus says the word "Well done!"
