Passing through a lonely way

Representative Text

1. Passing thro' a lonely way,
Mists deceiving, cloud my day;
Why should I my footsteps stay?
Jesus walks with me.

Chorus:
Jesus walks with me.
In the narrow way;
I will follow Him each day,
Till His face I see.

2. Though my trials heavy be,
He can all my danger see,
Bring me joy and victory.
Jesus walks with me. [Chorus]

3. Though in sorrow I may weep,
Though in death I fall asleep,
Through the valley dark and deep
He will walk with me. [Chorus]

4. When the judgment day shall break,
And all hearts with fear shall quake,
For His loved ones joy shall wake.
He will walk with me. [Chorus]
