1 Since I found Him at the cross,
I am walking with Jesus;
Ev’ry day thro’ gain or loss,
I am walking with Jesus.

Refrain:
I am walking with Jesus,
Yes, I’m walking with Jesus,
Step by step along life’s road,
I am walking with Jesus.

2 What tho’ shadows round me spread?
I am walking with Jesus;
Always there’s a light ahead,
While I’m walking with Jesus. [Refrain]

3 Friends may come or friends may go,
I am walking with Jesus;
‘Tis enough for me to know
I am walking with Jesus. [Refrain]

4 What tho’ grief should start my tears?
I am walking with Jesus;
Still my soul will have no fears,
I am walking with Jesus. [Refrain]

5 Tho’ I walk up Calvary’s hill,
I am walking with Jesus;
Or Gethsemane so still,
I am walking with Jesus. [Refrain]

6 Soon His face I will behold,
I am walking with Jesus;
Soon upon the streets of gold,
I am walking with Jesus. [Refrain]
