This is my first collaboration with Lena, who has also written with my friend Elton Smith at Songs of Praise. Lena sent me the music and the title, and I completed the lyrics extending from that title. This is written lyrically as a 3-verse ballad. I like the reflective nature of the music that Lena has composed.


Where Jesus Walked

(verse 1)
On the road from Galilee
Through the pathway of the wilderness
With ev'ry eye upon Him
As Jesus walked.
 
Through the towns and by the sea
On His journey to Jerusalem
The people came to follow
Where Jesus walked.

Though He knew the way would lead
Up to the hill of the cross
Still, He followed His Father's will
Regardless of the cost.

(verse 2)
Every step began in prayer
On His journey through humanity
The love of God revealing
As Jesus walked.

People came from everywhere
Bringing to Him every hope and fear
The Light dispelled the darkness
Where Jesus walked.

Jesus laughed, and Jesus cried
He knew rejoicing and pain
Soon becoming our sacrifice
That we may live again.

(verse 3)
Soldiers led the Lord away
On the road that led to Calvary,
His sweat and blood upon Him
As Jesus walked.

Though they did not know that day,
Jesus gave His life so willingly,
The Word of God fulfulling
As Jesus walked.

Jesus took our sin away
Now grace and mercy abound.
Seek the Savior who calls to you,
While grace may still be found.
(repeat)
Seek the Savior who calls to you,
While grace may still be found.

(ending)
On the road from Galilee
Through the pathway of the wilderness
The Light dispelled the darkness
Where Jesus walked...
