First Steps

First Steps

As I learn to walk with You, Lord,
I’ll take each step, however small.
Though I may stumble from time to time,
I know with You I’ll never fall.

I’ll hold onto Your hand, Father,
As You lovingly guide the way,
Knowing that wherever You lead me,
On Your path I will always stay.

Through dismal tunnels dark,
Into bright passages of light,
I’ll walk forward with You, Lord,
Bravely facing the night.

When I falter in Your footsteps, Jesus,
I know You will gently lift me up.
When my feet are tired and worn,
You’ll let me drink from Your loving cup.

Each new fresh morning is another walk;
Oh, there’s so much more I have to do,
But I’ll take each welcome step, dear Lord,
Because it will bring me closer home to You.

For even hereunto were ye called:
because Christ also suffered for us,
leaving us an example, that ye should follow His steps.
1 Peter 2:21

He that saith he abideth in Him (Jesus)
ought himself also so to walk, even as He walked.
1 John 2:6
