Representative Text

1 Journeying with Jesus, in His chosen way,
Foll'wing in His footsteps we can never stray;
Sometimes on the mountain, sometimes in the vale,
Onward, ever trusting love which cannot fail.

Refrain:
Journeying with Jesus, ever near His side,
Walking in the pathway where our Lord doth guide;
Singing as we travel to our home above,
Trusting in His mercy, resting in His love.

2 Journeying with Jesus, in the heart a song,
Never in His presence can the road seem long;
Listening to His counsel, tender, kind, and true,
Keeping near the Master all the journey through. [Refrain]

3 Journeying with Jesus, all along the way,
Sorrows are forgotten, night is turned to day;
Resting on the promise, leaning on His arm,
Precious peace our portion, for we fear no harm. [Refrain]

4 Journeying with Jesus till the road shall end,
Faithful is our Leader, trusty is our Friend;
Asking for His guidance on our homeward way,
Till we lose the shadows, find eternal day. [Refrain]
