Traveling On My Knees 

Traveling On My Knees 

Author Unknown

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 sins,

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, I 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 on 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.”
