Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16
Verse 1: I walk the old, old pathway Beside a faithful friend, And often hear His presence near, “Lo I am with you always And will be to the end.”
Verse 2: Ahead are dear disciples Who walked this very ground; From year to year, they passed through here And lined the way with Bibles To mark the path they found.
Verse 3: At times along my journey I close my eyes in prayer And faintly see not far from me A meadow green with mercy And loved ones standing there.
Verse 4: The camp that lies before me Is joined in pleasant song; Immanuel has come to dwell And spread the tent of glory That I have sought so long.
