if i could have walked with jesus

 
if i could have walked with jesus 
if i could travel in time i know where I'd go and when
way back during the time Jesus walked among men
to see all those marvelous things he did
oh! and to hear the sermon he gave as a kid
but you know what would really be swell
to walk alone aside him as one of the twelve
and imagine being right there in that boat 
watching him walk across water as if he could float 
i mean just to see the things he accomplished 
he fed so many people with only a Little bread and a few fish
just to be there even for time 
to see him help the lame to walk and heal the blind
and it would really give me a thrill
to experience him quieting the storm by just saying peace be still
like everyone i would be so amazed
to have seen him raise his dearest friend from the grave
i often wondered how i would have felt 
if i had been there when my lord wept
to sit at the last supper as he was so brave 
know all the time that he was being betrayed
but i don't think i could watch as they treated him so grim
 i would have jumped in and carried that cross for him 
and you know the moment i would really savor 
is to have been there when he rose three days later
even though i cant go back to way back then
i need to start preparing for he'll be back again
