When I started my journey in fresh childlike trust
I believed that the Lord’s way was best.
I would read in His Word how He mothered the bird
And grieved when it fell from it's nest.
How I felt His delight when I chose to do right,
And I prayed I would not make Him sad.
We would meet on the way in the cool of the day,
What a pure sweet communion we had.

Oh, but now more than ever I cherish the cross.
More than ever I sit at His feet.
All the miles of my journey have proved my Lord true,
And He is so precious to me.

The road I have traveled has sometimes been steep,
Through wild jagged places of life.
Sometimes I’ve stumbled and fallen so hard
That the stones cut my soul like a knife.
But the staff of my Shepherd would reach out for me
And lift me to cool pastures green.
With oil of the spirit anointing my wounds,
There I’d rest by the clear healing stream.


Is Love’s Old Sweet Story too good to be true?
Do you find all this hard to believe?
Has the cruel world we live in so battered your heart
That the hurt child inside you can’t grieve?
I can’t say I blame you.
I’ve been where you are.
But all I can say is
It’s true!
You’re wanted,
You’re precious,
You’re the love of His heart,
And the old rugged cross was for you.

    More Than Ever...Just heard that song for the first time tonight. Tim said he wants it sung at his funeral. So do I. Gaithers write songs that truly touch heartstrings.

    Since I found out about this song, it serves as my anthem, reminding me that the road is not easy but whenever I remember the cross, i wanna keep moving cos my Lord is always proven true. Truly, this song sends tears down my cheeks.

    At a time in my life where i was literally in the pit of despair with depression so severe that my days were black and meaningless and i couldn't think or feel anything, the words to this song penetrated that darkness, reflected where i was and what i was feeling and gave me hope and strength

    I think ever christian can identify with this song, because it traces the journey of a christian from the days of child like devotion to questioning and doubt. But i love this song because at the end of it all the love of god so powerfully shines through. This song always brings me to tears.
