Representative Text

1 Hasten down to the Gospel station,
Drawing near is the Heav’n-bound train,
It is now on the way to glory,
Nevermore to return again;
Bright the headlight of truth is gleaming,
It’s on time, and will not delay;
Now it’s slowing up at the station,
I can hear the conductor say:

All aboard, we’re going to glory,
All aboard, come, join our band;
All aboard, come, swell the sweet story,
We are bound for glory land!

2 There’s no time to delay, my brother,
Get your ticket, and be on time,
Soon the powerful Gospel engine
Will be off for the heav’nly clime;
Ask the Savior for His protection,
He is sure to be true and kind,
If you linger in doubt and folly,
You will surely be left behind. [Refrain]

3 Come and start on the way to glory,
There to dwell in the land divine,
With our Savior, the Great Conductor,
At the end of the glory line;
There to enter the holy city,
Where we’ll meet our beloved and own,
Join with them and the holy angels,
Singing praises around the throne. [Refrain]
