Go Thy Way
Jesus Christ, the pure and lowly,
Walking in the market-place,
Passing through the vast throng slowly,
With compassion on His face,
Touched the leper with His healing.
This was all He chose to say —
Deeds, not words, His strength revealing-
"Tell no man, but go thy way."
Then another came, beseeching:
"Lord, my servant lieth ill;
Thy great power is so far-reaching,
Thy word alone can do Thy will"
Now the crowd began to ponder,
Questioning: "What will He say?"
Jesus checked their idle wonder
With "Have faith," and "Go thy way."
Onward then, dear Christian soldier,
This the charge He gives to thee;
Let each victory make you bolder,
As His glorious power you see.
Pray for faith from hour to hour;
Do thy duty day by day;
For this service He gives power;
Trust in God, and "Go thy way."

A Little Note from Cobblestone Road Ministries:
And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge,
that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.
Romans 8:37 tells us that "we are more than
conquerors through him that loved us."
How thankful I am of the Lord Jesus-- His mercy and power!
His compassion answered the need of those who called upon
Him for help and His power healed those around Him.
We, as Christians, are nothing without the Lord! It's His power,
which enables us day by day, hour by hour, and minute by minute
to do His work. Rely on God, trust Him-- look to Jesus
for strength-- He gives the power needed to be victorious.
Through Him, we are more than conquerors.
Prayer and faith go hand in hand. Prayer to a mighty God,
who is "able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we
ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us"
(Ephesians 3:20b). And Faith in our mighty God, "Unto him
be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages,
world without end. Amen."
When these verses are called to remembrance, we are
reminded of the awesome, amazing power of God
working in our lives. He gives power for every
service... we must look to Him and trust in the Lord!
