My Lord knows the way through the wilderness,
All I have to do is follow.
My Lord knows the way through the wilderness,
All I have to do is follow.
Strength for today is mine all the way,
And all that I need for tomorrow.
My Lord knows the way through,
All I have to do is follow.

    I learned this song when I was young. (I’m 66 now). I forgot two of the lines so I made up two that would fit. I was pretty close. Thanks for putting it in the internet.

    My mother taught my four sisters and I to sing this song as children and took us to nursing homes to sing it as children. I am 53 now and my fiancée and I were singing this to my mother recently. Then, moments later, she left this life and went on home to be with Jesus. It was such a beautiful thing for everyone who witnessed it.

    My pastor, Mike Erre, First Evangelical Free Church of Fullerton preached a sermon on “wilderness” yesterday. He isn’t old enough to know the song, but the truth of the words are timeless, true and absolutely applicable to everything that is happening to most of us today.

    God brought this little Sunday school chorus to my mind as I was studying the life of Moses with BIble Study Fellowship. I am so happy to be able to use this technology to make sure I had all the words correctly. God is faithful and always right with us in the wilderness of this life here on earth.

    i am 52 yrs old and is hearing this song for the first time. I came across some of the words I during my Our Daily Bread devotions and I then looked it up on the Internet. It’s an amazing song that carries so much hope. It gives us so much assurance and reminds us that all we have to do is to follow the Savior. He equips us with just what we need for each day. Amen!

    Thanks for the words to this chorus which came to me after years when thinking of a church member who is suffering with cancer.

    I believe that the correct version is as follows:

    The/my Lord knows the way through the wilderness,
    All I have to do is TO follow.
    The Lord knows the way through the wilderness,
    All I have to do is TO follow.
    Strength for today is mine all the way,
    And all that I need for tomorrow.
    The Lord knows the way through THE WILDERNESS,
    All I have to do is TO follow

    Chorus: follow, follow, I will follow Jesus
    Anywhere, everywhere, I will follow him
    follow, follow, I will follow Jesus
    Anywhere He leads me, I will follow Him.

    I will song at the dining room table as a child. I was one of 4 children in our family. I was the one that truly love this song. Davy Crockett was really big on that day so was Daniel Boone in his coonskin cap. I would think of them as I sing this song. Still this song hang with me. I reflect back on this many times you my life. I was the one child that seem to go from one Wilderness experience to another. I struggled very much throughout my life I am now 54. Many times I did not follow the lord through the Wilderness and the times were really tough. I often think how much easier my life would have been had I followed him closely. I went from alcoholism and drug addiction and a debauched lifestyle. All my friends ended up cheating with my lovers. This all stemmed out of fornication. Our country to walk away from its first love and I left with it. I’ve come back to Jesus, but I’ve worked it so much my life what is been absolutely miserable when I could have just stayed by his side and let him lead me through this wilderness. What I knew as a child is what piece that I forfeited throughout my life. Listen children if your parents tell you to follow Jesus Through the wilderness listen close to their voice. Jesus knows the way through the wilderness all you have to do is follow. Life is better with Jesus.
