ONE STEP AT A TIME


I WALKED ONE NIGHT ALONE A PATH,
A LIGHT WAS IN MY HAND.
IT SHONE BUT JUST A LITTLE WAY
FROM WHERE I CHANCED TO STAND.

I TOOK A STEP ALONE THE PATH.
THE LIGHT THEN MOVED AHEAD
JUST FAR ENOUGH FOR ME TO SEE
WHERE ON THE PATH TO TREAD.

I KNEW THE PATH LEAD TO MY GOAL,
I COULD NOT SEE IT AT ALL.
YET IF I WALKED WITH THE LIGHT,
THEN I COULD NEVER FALL.

STEP BY STEP, I WALK THE PATH
JUST ONE STEP AT A TIME.
SOON I COULD SEE MY GOAL AHEAD,
AND FELT THE JOY SUBLIME.

IF I HAD TRIED TO RUN AHEAD
AND LEAVE THE LIGHT BEHIND,
THE PATH-WAY I COULD NOT HAVE SEEN,
AND THE GOAL I WOULD NOT FIND.

NOW JESUS LEAD THE VERY WAY.
"I AM THE LIGHT", SAYS HE.
"I'LL LEAD YOU SAFELY ON THRU LIFE,
IF YOU WILL FOLLOW ME".

YOUR PATH MAY LEAD THRU DARKNESS GREAT
WITH TRIALS ON EVERY SIDE,
BUT IF YOU'LL FOLLOW IN HIS LIGHT,
THEN HE WILL BE YOUR GUIDE.

THE GOAL FOR EVERY CHRISTIAN IS
TO SERVE HIS LOARD AND KING,
AND SOMEDAY STAND IN HEAVEN,
AND WITH THE ANGLES SING.

DON'T THINK THAT YOU MUST SEE THE COURSE
THAT GOD HAS PLANNED FOR YOU.
JUST FAITH AND ONE STEP AT A TIME
WITH CHRIST, WILL SEE YOU THRU.
