Burton, Annie L.
|MY FAVORITE HYMNS|
"Over the line," hear the sweet refrain,
Angels are chanting the heavenly strain:
"Over the line,"--Why should I remain
With a step between me and Jesus!
But my sins are many, my faith is small,
Lo! the answer came quick and clear;
"Thou needest not trust in thyself at all,
Step over the line, I am here."
But my flesh is weak, I tearfully said,
And the way I cannot see;
I fear if I try I may sadly fail,
And thus may dishonor Thee.
Ah, the world is cold, and I cannot go back
Press forward I surely must;
I will place my hand in his wounded palm
Step over the line, and trust.
