Journey with Jesus

"For the cloud of the LORD was upon the tabernacle by day, and fire was on it by night, in the sight of all the house of Israel, throughout all their journeys" (Exodus 40:38).  "I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with Mine eye.  Be ye not as the horse, or as the mule, which have no understanding" (Psalm 32:8,9).  "For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind" (2 Timothy 1:7). 

A cloud by day and fire by night
Upon tabernacle stayed;
Throughout their journeys in the sight
Of Israel it was displayed.

Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,
Who guided them, is still our Guide. 
The Lamb of God once sacrificed
Now bids us follow by His side. 

The horse and mule are not inclined
To follow Christ with understanding,
But God gives grace and a sound mind
With love to heed our Lord's commanding. 

Lord Jesus Christ, we journey on
As You now lead us to the place
Where our eternal joy shall dawn
When we shall see You face to face.
