THE BEST WAY TO TRAVEL
Last night I took a journey
to a land across the seas,
I did not go by boat or plane
I traveled on my knees.
I saw people there deep in sin,
Some of whom were my kin,
Jesus told me I should go
"See how many I could win!"
I said, "but that's not possible
For one such as me."
He answered quickly, "Yes, you can
Travel on your knees."
He said, "You pray. I'll meet your need.
You call and I will hear."
So I knelt in prayer and felt at ease
as I knew that he was near.
"Yes Lord I know I can do the job
My desire is to please."
I will heed your call as you have asked
And travel on my knees.
