Every little step I take Forward in my heavenly way

Every little step I take Forward in my heavenly way

Representative Text

1 Ev’ry little step I take
Forward in my heav’nly way,
Ev’ry little effort make
To grow Christ-like day by day;

Refrain:
Jesus, what a joy to know,
Thou art watching as I go,
Ev’ry little step I take,
Ev’ry effort that I make.

2 Little sighs and little prayers,
Even little tears which fall,
Little hopes, and tears, and cares,
Saviour, Thou dost know them all. [Refrain]

3 Thus my greatest joy is this,
That my Saviour, loving, mild,
Knows the children’s weaknesses,
And Himself was once a child. [Refrain]
