Footprints Of Light

 

Affirming The Classics: Footprints In The Sand

I walked with my friend Jesus beside the sea
Knowing that with me He would always be
I was on the damp, dense sand of the Earth
He on soft, light and golden, with me since birth

We turned to look at the footprints we’d made
But only one set could I see out there laid
Weaving in and out of the waves of the sea
At various depths were the footprints of me

I recalled and went to a time in my past
Heavy-hearted, my feet sinking fast
Into the sea of life I’d gone too deep
But near to me Jesus would always keep

Looking back at our footprints I now saw
Rays of Light I did not notice there before
Straight and True His prints were of the Light
A way to Be, His Loving Path shined so bright

Then I noticed the more delicate steps of mine
Were as I moved closer and I did combine
My own path with the Light of His Way
On soft, golden sands with Him I now stay

One more lesson His Footprints came to tell
Gratitude to Mother Earth and to keep her well
He left no imprint, only Blessings of Light
My Inner Being knows this vision to be right
