One Day As I Was Walking

One day as I was walking, I heard someone talking.

So I turn to look and before my eyes
I saw a tall brown haired man.

He took me by the hand and said that he was my friend.

He told me to keep walking
Until I see the light shining bright.

When I saw the light shining bright
I knew I was going in the right direction.

As I thought about what Jesus had said,
I looked up and he had disappeared.

I started my journey remembering the words that were said by this wonderful great man.

Then finally I came upon the light that was shining bright.

My eyes could see more clearly about the things in front of me which is so dear to me and the love that holds deep down in my heart for everyone near.

For it was my Jesus which brought me here.
