Representative Text

1 All the way I’ll walk with Jesus,
Tho’ his face I cannot see,
Just to know that he is near me,
This is joy enough for me.

Blessed Lord what joy to be
Walking all the way with thee,
Feeling the touch of that hand divine,
Knowing the Christ-love is ever mine;
Bright in the light of eternity,
Jesus my Saviour I’ll see, I’ll see.

2 He will tune my silent powers
To a melody divine;
Falling down in golden showers,
O’er my path his mercies shine. [Refrain]

3 All the way I’ll walk with Jesus,
Tho’ the billows round me roar;
Death is but the shining portal,
To the blissful glory shore. [Refrain]
