Traveling on My Knees

Last night I took a journey

To a land across the seas.

I didn’t go by ship or plane

I traveled on my knees.

I saw so many people there

In bondage to their sin,

And Jesus told me I should go,

That there were souls to win.

But I said “Jesus, I can’t go

To lands across the seas.”

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.

It’s up to you to be concerned

For lost souls far and near.”

And so I did; knelt in prayer,

Gave up some hours of ease,

And with the Savior by my side,

I traveled on my knees.

As I prayed on, I saw souls saved

And twisted persons healed,

I saw God’s workers strength renewed

While laboring in the field.

I said, “Yes Lord, I’ll take the job.

Your heart I want to please.

I’ll heed Your call and swiftly go

By traveling on my knees.”
