Lyrics

Walking with Je­sus, from morn­ing till night,
Walking with Je­sus my Lord;
Walking with Je­sus, in gar­ments made white,
Walking with Je­sus my Lord;
Walking with Je­sus, with hand clasped in hand,
Walking with Je­sus in Ca­naan’s bright land,

Refrain

Walking with Je­sus, O blest be His name!
Walking with Je­sus my Lord.
Walking with Je­sus, walk­ing with Je­sus,
Walking with Je­sus, O blest be His name!
Walking with Je­sus my Lord.

Walking with Je­sus when dan­ger is nigh,
Walking with Je­sus my Lord;
Walking with Je­sus, when billows run high;
Walking with Je­sus my Lord;
Walking with Je­sus in po­ver­ty’s vale,
Walking with Je­sus whose love will ne’er fail,

Refrain

Walking with Je­sus, when friends prove un­true
Walking with Je­sus my Lord;
Walking with Je­sus, what­ev­er they do;
Walking with Je­sus my Lord;
Walking with Je­sus, in step by His side,
Walking with Je­sus what­ev­er be­tide,

Refrain

Walking with Je­sus, by faith and not sight,
Walking with Je­sus my Lord;
Walking with Je­sus, with songs of de­light;
Walking with Je­sus my Lord;
Walking with Je­sus, my staff and my stay,
Walking with Je­sus, the truth and the way,

Refrain
