Lyrics

Walking with Jesus,
Oh, fellowship sweet!
Walking with Him hour by hour;
Talking with Him,
As I work for His cause,
Trusting in His mighty power.

Refrain

Walking and talking
With Jesus, my friend,
Walking and talking with Him;
Oh what rapture divine,
Oh, what happiness mine,
As I walk and talk with my friend.

Walking with Jesus
Helps burdens grow light,
Making the trials grow dim;
Telling Him all
Of my joy and my cares,
Casting it all upon Him.

Refrain

Walking with Jesus
While doing His will,
Wearing the yoke of His love;
Learning the patience
That comes from His strength,
Gaining the grace from above.

Refrain

Walking with Jesus
Each day of my life,
Walking with Jesus, my friend;
Talking with Jesus as we journey on,
Till all life’s journeys shall end.
