Walking Beside Him
by Eve Westfield
“I dreamed he let me walk beside Him
My heart full of anguish and pain
I told him I was so very lonely
He said ‘You’ll never be lonely again’
For you are walking here beside me
And I’m your true forgiving friend
Whenever you are sad and lonely
And your heart so full of pain
Just reach out and walk beside me
And you’ll never be lonely again”
