We’re on a one-track Christian train,
It’s numbered 3:16; Jesus is the Engineer,
And He runs one “mean machine.”
He takes it up and down the hills
Around the sharpest curves;
He regulates the speed just right.
It never even swerves.
He takes this train through valleys deep
As prudently He steers;
We’re blessed He’s at the throttle folks,
And is Chief Engineer.
When this train climbs mountain peaks
To nearly touch the sky,
He blows its whistle loud and clear,
No need to question why.
This Christian train spans wilderness too,
So smoothly gliding ‘across.
We settle back to enjoy the view,
Knowing Jesus is the Boss.
Sometimes stormy clouds appear
Or fog is all about us,
But Jesus keeps us right on track,
No reason to reroute us.
The 3:16′s a Local, folks,
It stops in every town.
Anyone can come on board,
This train is heaven bound.
Passengers can leave the train,
Whenever they so choose.
But why get off this 3:16?
There’s just too much to lose.
Keep your ticket in your hand,
Wave to the Engineer.
He’ll get you to the Promised Land,
His destination’s clear!

You’re Precious in His Eyes
Trust God today, He’s still in charge,
Your life is safe with Him.
Your way ahead is very bright,
Although to you it’s dim.
Just place your trust in Him each day,
Each second and each hour.
Though you’re weak and have no strength,
He is a God of power.
He doesn’t cause the way to be rough but He knows sometimes it will be tough,
He’ll lead you and He’ll strengthen you,
He’ll stay right by your side.
Let Him be your everything
And in His peace abide.
There’s nothing in your life, my friend,
To take God by surprise.
He’s in control and He Loves you.
You’re precious in His eyes.
