My Jesus, You are the smile on my face,
My saving grace,
And I live for Your Promise
that one day I will meet You
Face to face.
It is not I who is the one that leads your sheep,
Out front and standing tall.
I follow behind
And have been known to fall
Yet knowing that I somehow remain on that path,
which one day will lead to You –
Brings to me the kind of Joy
that I never knew.
And I admit it is a true adventure each new day,
following Your guidance and
Patiently listening and waiting for Your word.
For only then am I urged to follow a particular course of action.
All the while,
confident that my direction is Your command
That my open heart has heard.
Oh, my precious Jesus,
Truly there is no life without Your breath,
Only empty days full of decay and spiritual death.
Allow me sweet Jesus to apologize for all
who continually hurt thee, including me.
My Savior who has given His all
To set us free.
Jesus while I wait to spend eternity with Thee,
Each precious day on earth is an opportunity.
An opportunity to work at becoming pleasing in Your eyes.
Until that day when I am lifted up to meet You
In Your heavenly skies,
May I always be in You as You are in me.
