Hope - Poem by Eva L. Shaw

As I walked down life's pathway all alone
I met a friend called Jesus on the way
I asked Him to come into my heart and live within
And I would love Him, yes love Him, forevermore.
The path was narrow, the path was straight, the path to home
He was guiding me on the rough uneven road
I was trusting, ever trusting in my Lord
As I walked down life's pathway I wasn't alone.
The way is sometimes weary
And the way is sometimes hard
The way is always exciting
Because I am trusting in His way
As I let Him lead me on
Ever trusting, ever loving
He's leading me home.
One day He said to me, 'You need to walk on in My way
Will you serve me, will you trust me forevermore? '
Then He said, ' I will lead and not just guide
Step by step ever trust me, I must lead.'
The way was sometimes weary, and
The way was sometimes hard
The way was always exciting
Because I was trusting in His word.
The way was His way
As I let Him guide me on
Ever trusting, ever loving
He is leading me home.
