Travelling on My Knees

Last night I took a journey to a land across the seas; I did not go by boat or plane, I travelled on my knees I saw many people there In deepest depths of sin, But Jesus told me I should go, That there were souls to win. But I said," Jesus, I cannot go And work with such as these." He answered quickly," Yes, you can By travelling on your knees." He said, "You pray; I'll meet the need, You call and I will hear; Be concerned about lost souls, Of those both far and near." And so I tried, knelt in prayer, Gave up some hours of ease; I felt the Lord right by my side While travelling on my knees. As I prayed on and saw souls saved And twisted bodies healed, And saw God's workers' strength renewed While labouring on the field. I said, Yes, Lord, I have a job, My desire Thy Will to please; I can go and heed Thy call By travelling on my knees."
