Judy Lentz

Having just returned 5 days earlier from the most wonderful trip to the Holy Land, Bob and I attended a Wednesday service that is a part of the Lenten Pilgrimage provided by the Greater Greenwood United Ministries. Each week the service is at a different church. Attendees are from all churches in Greenwood, SC (our winter home). The service was especially well attended.

The solo was provided by an older gentleman with a beautiful bass voice. When he started singing, tears began running down my cheeks. Doug had told all of us on the Sharon Pilgrimage to the Holy Land that we would experience the liturgical year very differently than ever before. I was not prepared for the depth of my reaction. The song being sung that elicited such an emotional response from me was “I Walked Today Where Jesus Walked”. The lyrics are so profound – it was almost as if Christ was reminding me of the wonders of our recent trip and the impact it would have – my life has been changed forever.

I walked today where Jesus walked,
In days of long ago.
I wandered down each path He knew,
With reverent step and slow.
Those little lanes, they have not changed,
A sweet peace fills the air,
I walked today where Jesus walked,
And felt His presence there.

My pathways led through Bethlehem,
A memory’s ever sweet.
The little hills of Galilee,
That knew those childish feet,
The Mount of Olives, hallowed scenes,
That Jesus knew before.
I saw the mighty Jordan row,
As in the days of yore.

I knelt today where Jesus knelt,
Where all alone He prayed.
The garden of Gethsemane,
My heart felt unafraid.
I picked my heavy burdens up.
And with Him by my side.
I climbed the Hill of Calvary,
I climbed the Hill of Calvary,
I climbed the Hill of Calvary,
Where on the Cross He died.

I knelt today where Jesus knelt,
And felt Him close to me

Prayer:   Dear Lord – thank you for the blessing of being able to walk where Jesus walked. Just as the lyrics of this song touched my heart, so do the words of many songs touch the hearts of those who love Him. We thank you for sacrificing your son for our salvation. Amen.
