Let Me Walk Lord By Your Side

In a church on Sunday morning
Sat a man unwelcome there
Judged by men and not by Jesus
He lifted up his voice in prayer

   Steer me on the righteous pathway
   Help me humbly to abide
   Hold me to your precious bosom
   Let me walk lord by your side

Several silent moments followed
It seemed that no one was in that room
Then a voice it roared like thunder
Look for me I’m coming soon

Such a change I’ve never witnessed
Tear filled eyes were plainly shown
Gathered there around that stranger
Saying God bless you welcome home
