Sometimes the Saviour asks of us to walk a path that’s dim,
We dare not try to look ahead but only look to Him.
The ground may be uneven and our walk feel insecure,
But when we look at Him we know He’s been this way before.
The Lord loves those who trust in Him, He puts them to the test.
He knows they won’t rely on self but say ‘The Lord knows best’
And very soon they realise (although it’s dark as night)
With Jesus there beside them they are walking in the light.
There comes a time for everyone to dare to follow through
And walk that path and learn of Him the Faithful and the True.
This path is of His choosing and our choice is to obey -
If we would be like Jesus then there is no other way.
