My Journey to God

Jesus Walks Beside Me

My cross is not very heavy
The journey is not so rough
Because Jesus walks beside me
To know this is enough.

O Jesus what a joy
To know that you care
To know when I search for you
You will always be there.

Thank you Jesus for the common things
We encounter in our lives every day
The things we accept without question
But do not include when we pray.
