One more step along the world I go …

Had a request for a leaving card for a Methodist minister from one of my Christian friends. Now Christians don’t tend to go for “Good Luck” type cards as we believe that we don’t need luck when God is on our side – in fact I haven’t made one yet!!!

So what to do … ?

Then the old Methodist hymn came to mind … One more step along the world I go

This is also going to be my entry for the This Thursday Challenge 5 – All Change – nothing more of a change than a new job and a new house at the same time 🙂

One more step along the world I go,
one more step along the world I go;
from the old things to the new
keep me traveling along with you:
Refrain:
And it’s from the old I travel to the new;
keep me traveling along with you.

Round the corner of the world I turn,
more and more about the world I learn;
all the new things that I see
you’ll be looking at along with me: Refrain

As I travel through the bad and good,
keep me traveling the way I should;
where I see no way to go
you’ll be telling me the way, I know: Refrain

Give me courage when the world is rough,
keep me loving though the world is tough;
leap and sing in all I do,
keep me traveling along with you: Refrain

You are older than the world can be,
you are younger than the life in me;
ever old and ever new,
keep me traveling along with you: Refrain

    […] Reluctant to go along the ‘Good Luck in your new job’ route as I don’t do luck (see previous post) so had the brainwave of using this Dottie image to create a different sort of new job […]
