Representative Text

1 Leaning on Jesus, can aught betide me?
Walking with Him, walking with Him;
He will deliver, protect and guide me,
Walking with Him today.

Refrain:
Walking and talking with my dear Saviour,
Comfort and blessings abound in my way;
O, I rejoice in His great salvation,
Walking with Him today.

2 Shadows depart and the way grows brighter,
Walking with Him, walking with Him;
Trials are fewer an d burdens lighter,
Walking with Him today. [Refrain]

3 He is my guide and the way He knoweth,
Walking with Him, walking with Him;
Peace like a river my soul o’erfloweth,
Walking with Him today. [Refrain]
