T H E R O A D T O H E A V E N
The road to heaven by Christ was made,
With heavenly truths the rails were laid;
From earth to heaven the line extends,
To life eternal where 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.
The Bible is the engineer,
It points the way to heaven so clear;
Through tunnels dark and drear here,
It doth the way to glory steer.
God's love the fire, his truth the steam,
Which drives the engine and the train;
All you, who would to glory ride,
Must come to Christ, in him abide.
Come then, poor sinner, now's the time,
At any station on the line,
If you'll repent and turn from sin,
The train will stop and take you in.
That heavenly home is bright and fair,
No pain nor death can enter there;
It's glittering towers the sun outshine,
That heavenly mansion shall be mine.
I'm going home' I'm going home,
I'm going home to die no more!
