‘Life’s Railway To Heaven’ The Oak Ridge Boys At Larry’s Country Diner

One of the most well-known and beloved country and gospel groups of all time gave a moving performance of ‘Life’s Railway to Heaven.”

Most people, even if they aren’t familiar with any of their songs, have at least heard of the musical group The Oak Ridge Boys. The group has been around for decades, winning multiple awards and producing such memorable hit songs as “Leaving Louisiana in the Broad Daylight,” “Bobbie Sue” and “Elvira.”

In a clip posted on YouTube, the guys appeared on Larry’s Country Diner and thrilled the studio audience with a rendition of “Life’s Railway to Heaven.” Their beautiful voices harmonize perfectly together, creating a wonderful sound. It’s a clip that is worth more than a few views.

The song is all about the trials and tragedies that everyone faces along the road of life. However, the lyrics remind all that despite all the rough patches and the unexpected detours, there is a destination. The destination will make all the hardships, turmoil and tragedy worth it.

Heaven awaits those who do not fall away but press on and follow Christ. The song’s chorus perfectly articulates and describes that place of everlasting life and peace.

“Blessed Savior, thou will guide us
Till we reach that blissful shore
Where the angels wait to join us
In God’s praise for evermore”

The song’s second verse reiterates how all will encounter difficulties and unpleasant circumstances. However, holding on and keeping one’s focus straight ahead and on Jesus is what everyone must do in this life.

After that stirring and jaw-dropping performance about what awaits the believers and followers of Christ, the studio audience gives the guys a well-deserved round of applause. One doesn’t even have to be the biggest country or gospel music fan to enjoy this performance. 

Colossians 3:16 “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.”
