Traveling On My Knees

                   Traveling On My Knees
                      written 1990                        

Last night I took a journey to a land across the sea
I did not go by boat or plane I traveled on my knees.
I saw so many people there in deepest depths of sin
But Jesus told me I should go that there were souls to win.
But I said Jesus, "I cannot go and work with such of these."
He answered quickly, "yes you can by traveling on your knees."
He said, "you pray, I'll meet the need, you call and I will hear
Be concerned about lost souls of these both far and near."
And so I tried it, knelt in prayer, gave up some hours of ease
As I prayed on and saw souls saved and twisted bodies healed,
And saw God's workers' strength renewed while laboring on the field.
I said, Yes Lord, I have a job, my desire Thy will to please;
I can go and heed Thy call by traveling on my knees."
