Purposeful Pathway
By: Caroline Gavin


Step by step,

Day after day,

I traverse with my Lord

Thispurposeful pathway.


Grateful I am

For this holy ground,

Which by His grace

I have wondrously found.


Plush and green,

It is lined with trees -

And fragrance of flowers

Dances in the breeze.


Adorning the path too

Arewaterfallsand fountains,

Rushing rivers and streams

And majestic mountains.


Birds soar in the sky,

They sing this song,

“Glory, Glory toGod,

On this path you belong.”


For my Savior Himself

Planted this path for me;

This purposeful pathway

He planned from eternity.


Thetwists and turns,

Intentional are they;

All is ever perfect

In the Lord’s pathway.


The trees standing tall,

Toward Heaven stretch high,

Remind me to embrace

My Lord to me nigh.


The colorful gardens,

Yes, each vibrant flower,

Remind me of my Jesus

And His beautiful power.


The waterfalls and fountains

With rushing water pure

Remind me of Living Water:

God gives Life to endure.


The view from the mountain,

Towering in its height,

Lifts my soul toHeaven,

Makes my heart take flight.


Even in the cold corners

And the damp, dark valley,

I marvel how the Lord’sLight

My eyes always see.


Jesus, take my hand:

I follow wherever You go.

On mountaintop and in valley

Your eternallovedoes show.


Each step that I take,

Beloved, I take for You;

I offer You all I am,

All I say, think and do.


No sweeter gift to me

Than to travel Hand-in-hand;

No greater purpose for me

Than to travel as You planned.


My will is one with Yours,

For You I long to please.

I shall travel anywhere:

Mountains, valleys, seas.


This pathway of purpose

My heart does treasure;

To do the Will of my Lord,

This is my good pleasure.


So rejoice with birds

I shall with their song,

“Glory, Glory to God,

On this path I belong.”


I marvel at this way

Beautifully lined with trees -

And the fragrance of flowers

Dancing in the breeze.


I delight in traversing

This holy ground,

I delight in my Lord’s voice:

How sweet the sound.


Yes, step by step,

Day after day,

I cling to Your hand, Jesus,

On this purposeful pathway.
