As along life’s path we walk

As along life's path we walk,

And in Jesus' footsteps tread,

What a joy, to meet and talk,

On each other's crumbs be fed.


What encouragement we gain

From our friendships here below.

Smiles in joy, comfort in pain,

Love to soften every blow.


May our words be healthy food

Helping us to grow in grace,

Bringing to each other good,

Strengthen us to run the race.


Hearing of the gospel's spread,

Though we both live far away,

Bringing glory to our Head,

Turning darkness into day.


Thank you, Lord, for every friend

Given for our company.

Keep them 'til the journey's end

And through all eternity.
