Hi Emma,

Here's what I could find. Hope this is the one!

I'm following Jesus,
One step at a time;
I live for the moment,
In His Love divine.
Why think of tomorrow,
Just live for today;
I'm following Jesus,
Each step of the way.

The pathway is narrow,
But He leads me on;
I walk in His shadow,
My fears are all gone.
My spirit grows stronger,
Each moment, each day,
For Jesus is leading
Each step of the way.

God bless,

thanks for the reply i'm not sure if this is the right lyrics to the song that im thinking of but i will take these lyrics and see if i can find some music to go with it.  i was only 3 yrs old when i sang it and the only reason that i even remember it is because family tell the story of how i sang and that was "i'm following jesus get out of my way"
                       thanks again for your help

It seems there is also a chorus. I am hunting for it too. I'm looking for a line."Living by faith...not walking by sight>>" Jesus is named too. He is our strength. Stuggling with my family and I am trying to sing it to myself to bring courage as only praising God can do. Also praying alot.
Loved your story. Only God's little stars can shine so sweetly. I teach Sunday school and love it.

As I recall, The song, I'm Following Jesus one step at a time is by Red Harper.  I am looking for other songs that he wrote, but can't find anything about Red Harper in any of the search engines. I could use some help.  Thanks, Jay

Hi Jay.  You must spell Redd  with 2 D's, and you can find him on Google

Redd Harper also wrote "Life's greatest adventure", "Just Smile and Praise the Lord" and "Up there in the blue"

Does anyone have the words to the chorus and any other verses to the song, Each Step Of The Way? I've also been trying to put the song together and the chorus escapes me. It's a beautiful old Hymn that needs to be sung in our churches today. If anyone can help, please email me at:

Redd also wrote "you laid your hand mighty Lord on the Range" as sung in the Billy Graham film "Oiltown USA"

As far as I am aware the words posted by Steve are the complete words for this song. Perhaps you are thinking of another song.

Each Step Of The Way

The pathway seems narrow, as He leads me on;

I walk in His shadow, my fears are all gone.

My spirit grows stronger, each moment, each day,

For, I’m following Jesus, each step of the way.

    I’m following Jesus, one step at a time

    I live for the moment, in His love divine

    Why think of tomorrow, just live for today

    I’m following Jesus, each step of the way.

    Oh, I’m following Jesus, one step at a time

    Well, I live for the moment, in His love divine

    Why think of tomorrow, just live for today

    I’m following Jesus, each step of the way.

Redd Harper, also known as the "Singing Cowboy", came to our church when I was a little girl many years ago. He brought his guitar and sang the song for us as his witness for Jesus. Then he told us how he came to write the song. I've sung this song off and on for many years thereafter. You can find the chords and lyrics for this song on www.cowboy_lyrics.com.  Enjoy Redd because his witness for our precious Lord lives on.

As a follow up to my last post, I got the website incorrect so I copied and pasted the lyrics and chords for your benefit. Please accept my apology.
