Charles H. Gabriel (1856–1932)


When the low­ly Je­sus trod
The paths of men be­low,
He be­held their bit­ter sor­row,
And their crush­ing woe;
He re­ceived them kind­ly, when
They joined Him on the way,
Graciously He walked and talked
With them from day to day.


Walking and talk­ing with Je­sus
Smoothes the rug­ged way
Walking and talk­ing with Je­sus
Brings the light of day;
Walking and talk­ing with Je­sus
Fills the heart with love;
Walking and talk­ing with Je­sus
Is like Heav’n above.

You may walk with Him to­day!
Believe it, wea­ry soul;
He will cause your heart to burn;
His words will make you whole;
With the smile of His dear face,
He’ll cheer you on the way;
Safely He will guide and lead you
On from day to day.


Oh, the joy to walk with Je­sus
To our home above,
Basking in the sun­shine of
His ev­er­last­ing love;
Oh, the joy to talk with Je­sus
In the sha­dow-land,
And to feel at ev­ery turn
The touch of His dear hand.
