Lyrics

Walking with Je­sus,
Oh, fel­low­ship sweet!
Walking with Him hour by hour;
Talking with Him,
As I work for His cause,
Trusting in His migh­ty pow­er.

Refrain

Walking and talk­ing
With Je­sus, my friend,
Walking and talk­ing with Him;
Oh what rap­ture di­vine,
Oh, what hap­pi­ness mine,
As I walk and talk with my friend.

Walking with Je­sus
Helps bur­dens grow light,
Making the tri­als grow dim;
Telling Him all
Of my joy and my cares,
Casting it all up­on Him.

Refrain

Walking with Je­sus
While do­ing His will,
Wearing the yoke of His love;
Learning the pa­tience
That comes from His strength,
Gaining the grace from above.

Refrain

Walking with Je­sus
Each day of my life,
Walking with Je­sus, my friend;
Talking with Je­sus as we jour­ney on,
Till all life’s jour­neys shall end.
