Lyrics

I Met Jesus Face To Face

Written By: Raymond Lee Peltier

Verse 1

I had walked life’s highway, with greatest of ease

Crawling and begging, n' asking please

Until one day in a quiet place

I met Jesus face to face

Verse 2

Striving toward fame,wealth was my goal

Much thought for my body, but not my soul

I had entered to win in life’s greatest race

'Til I met Jesus face to face

Chorus

I met Him, knew Him, and rushed to see

My Saviors eyes were fixed on me

I stumbled and fell, at His feet that day

My tears and bruises, all vanished away

Verse 3

Tears and bruises, had left not a trace

No one else did I see, But My Saviors face

I cried aloud, as I kneeled in defeat

Looking down, at My Saviors feet

Verse 4

My thought is now for the souls of men

I have lost my life, re-born in Him

Ever since that day in that quiet place

I met Jesus face to face

Chorus

I met Him, knew Him, and rushed to see

My Saviors eyes were fixed on me

I stumbled and fell, at His feet that day

My tears and bruises, all vanished away

Tag

Ever since that day in that quiet place

I met Jesus face to face (repeats to fade out)

Following Daddy's Steps

Written By: Raymond Lee Peltier

Verse 1

Watched my son playing just outside my door

With my next door neighbor who just turned four

Wondered why my child would choose

To wear my old worn out shoes

Verse 2

I saw him try with all his might

To make the laces snug and tight

I smiled to him he'd walk and then

He'd only step right out again

Chorus 1

I heard him say his voice was glad

I want to be just like my dad

I hope the steps that he would choose

Are safe for him to wear my shoes

Verse 3

Then a shout a cry of joy

A hello dad and a hiya boy

We've walked along in a measured stride

My heart filled with love and pride

Chorus 2

What have you done today my lad

I tried to wear your old shoes dad

They're big but when I'm a man

I'll wear your shoes I know I can

Verse 4

We stopped and stood there hand in hand

I saw my sons tracks in the sand

His words a prayer came back to me

Lord let my steps lead him to Thee

Repeat Chorus 2

What have you done today my lad

I tried to wear your old shoes dad

They're big but when I'm a man

I'll wear your shoes I know I can

(Chorus 2 fades out)
