I may never live to see
my life completely trouble free,
or walk a straight and narrow road,
and carry “not a heavy” load.
I’ll never see around a bend,
or riches at the rainbow’s end,
but I can walk with head held high,
and notice soft clouds drifting by.
Feel the sunshine’s warm embrace,
the gentle breeze upon my face.
I can hear a bird’s sweet song
beside each road I walk along.
These things I feel, and hear, and see =-
more clearly when God walks with me,
for just “His Presence” seems to bring
about the best in everything.
