Aunt Vickie has always been an encouragement to me in my piano playing. The other day she asked if we would post a video of me playing something so I found this little clip of “Life’s Railway to Heaven.” Jonathan took it while we were staying at the McEntires house on our recent Florida trip. (The sneaky fellow didn’t tell me I was on camera!) I was rather out of practice after a long trip but it was fun nonetheless. I love these good “mountain hymns!” Here’s the first verse and chorus:
Life is like a mountain railway,
With an engineer that’s brave;
We must make the run successful,
From the cradle to the grave;
Watch the curves, the fills, the tunnels;
Never falter, never quail;
Keep your hands upon the throttle,
And your eyes upon the rail.
Blessed Savior, Thou wilt guide us,
Till we reach that blissful shore,
When the Angels wait to join us
In Thy praise for evermore.
