Did not our heart burn within us, while He talked with us by the way? Luke 24:32
If you know Barnes’ full name, or where to get a good photo of him (head & shoulders, at least 200×300 pixels),
Walk Thou with me, nor let my footsteps stray
Apart from Thee, throughout life’s threatening way;
Be Thou my guide, the path I cannot see;
Close to Thy side, Lord, let me walk with Thee.
Dear Savior, let me trust my hand in Thine,
And let me know Thy steps are guiding mine;
Life’s changing way is oft times dark to me,
I fear no ill if I may walk with Thee.
Through weary years my way hath miry been;
My bitter tears Thy pitying eye hath seen;
My fainting heart hath heard Thy voice divine;
My trembling hand asks but to rest in Thine.
No earthly foe can give my spirit fear;
No threatening woe can quail when Thou art near;
No tempter’s snare can turn my steps aside,
For in Thy care, I’m safe whate’er betide.
