Words & Mus­ic: Al­bert B. Simp­son, Hymns of the Chris­tian Life No. 2 (South Ny­ack, New York: Chris­tian Al­li­ance Pub­lish­ing, 1897), num­ber 76 (🔊 pdf nwc).

Albert B. Simpson (1843–1919)


’Tis so sweet to walk with Je­sus,
Step by step and day by day;
Stepping in His very foot­prints,
Walking with Him all the way.


Step by step, step by step,
I would walk with Je­sus,
All the day, all the way,
Keeping step with Je­sus.

’Tis so safe to walk with Je­sus,
Leaning hard up­on His arm,
Following close­ly where He leads us,
None can hurt and naught can harm.


Step by step I’ll walk with Je­sus,
Just a mo­ment at a time;
Heights I have not wings to soar to
Step by step my feet can climb.


Jesus keep me clos­er—clos­er,
Step by step and day by day;
Stepping in Thy ve­ry foot­prints
Walking with Thee all the way.
