Stanley Brothers – When Jesus Beckons Me Home lyrics

I know that Jesus will never forsake
His love will find a way
He'll bridge the stream if his hand I will take
When he calls what can I say

Day follows night night follows day
Farther and farther I roam
What will my answer be what can I say
When Jesus beckons my home

Sometimes the clouds seem to cover his face
Sometimes the skies are so gray
Still by the stars and his wonderful grace
He'll roll the storm clouds away

    Heard this song for the first time this May 13th morning on the way to my place of Christian service. The Lord really spoke to my heart as I listened to the words. Causes me to want to walk closer and closer to my Jesus while I am still here. He gave His all for me. Humbles me to think, "What can I possibly give back to Him?" Answer: only me, and whatever He chooses to do with me in this present life. Hoping and praying the same for every member of His family of faith! (Acts 20: 24).
