I love the old hymns.  Our church sings the hymns with a few praise songs now and then.  It seems that the hymns are going by the way side, to me that is so sad.   So many people are missing out on learning the hymns.   I picked up the book "Then Sings My Soul", by Robert J. Morgan, that tells the stories behind 150 favorite hymns.   It has been so interesting reading the stories behind some of the hymns and learning what some of these authors have went through, but kept looking to the Lord through it all.

This morning in church we sang the hymn "STEP BY STEP"  it was one that I was not familiar with, but had so much meaning.


Tis so sweet to walk with Jesus, Step by step and day by day;
Stepping in His very footprints, Walking with Him all the way.

Tis so safe to walk with Jesus, Leaning hard upon His arm,
Following closely where He leads us, none can hurt and naught can harm.

Step by step I'll walk with Jesus, Just a moment at a time;
Heights I have not wings to soar to, Step by step my feet can climb,

Jesus keep me closer closer, Step by step and day by day;
Stepping in Thy very footprints, Walking with Thee all the way.


Step by step, step by step, I would walk with Jesus all the day, all the way, Keeping step with Jesus.

 Have a wonderful Lords Day!
