I was wondering if any one remembered this little melody. It was best sung during altar calls and I can't remember if there is more to it than what I remember.

I know the Lord will make a way for me,
I know the Lord will make a way for me,
If I live a holy life,
shun the wrong and do the right,
I know the Lord will make a way from me

Thanks very much for any help and may God bless you all!

I know the Lord will make a way for me.
I know the Lord will make a way for me.
If I live a holy life,
Shun the wrong and do the right,
I know the Lord will make a way for me.

He died to save me from my sin and shame.
He died to save me from my sin and shame.
Though my needs be great or small
He has suffered for them all,
He died to save me from my sin and shame.

‘Twill be a joy to hear Him say well done.
‘Twill be a joy to hear Him say well done.
If I trust and never doubt,
Pay my tithes and sing and shout,
‘Twill be a joy to hear Him say well done.

Thanks for these posts.  I knew the man who wrote this song.  His name is Paul Epps and he was a Church of Christ preacher and song leader.  He taught me almost everything about song leading and later I became a music director in a Baptist Church.  As far as I know, his last church was in Seymour, TX, but I knew him at Northside Church of Christ, Temple, TX.  The only reason I looked this up is because one of his sons, Barry sent me a song off You Tube with a similar title and I thought it was this one.

I remember this as a chorus to a hymn I sang as a child in the 1950's at Mennonite Bible school at Landis Valley (PA). The verse was:
I'm walking arm in arm with Jesus
I'm trusting Him to lead the way.
I know that if I always follow Him
He'll never let me go astray.
[then the chorus:]
I know the Lord will make a way for me
I know the Lord will make a way for me.
If I live a holy life,
Shun the wrong, and do the right.
I know the Lord will make a way for me.

This is the first verse

I know the Lord has made a way for me.
I know the Lord has made a way for me.
So I'll live for Him each day,
in the things I do and say;
I know the Lord has made a way for me.

He speaks indeed!  4am here and I couldn't sleep thinking about my children. The song came to mind "I know the Lord will make a way for me".  It  was a song someone taught me.

I just remembered singing this in our Church (South Africa) and I could not remember the whole hymn so I google the verse and got to this page, Thank you Jesus, just what I needed and to KNOW that HE will make a way when there seems no way at all. God bless you all..

I never heard those other verses.  Love it!
We sang this as 2nd verse:

I know The Lord has laid His Hand on me
I know The Lord has laid His Hand on me
If I live a Holy life, shun the wrong and do the right
I know The Lord will make a way for me.

Dit mooi koor leerden wij als kind op de Zondagschool.
Waren als kind in een kindertehuis van het Leger des Heils in Bandung, Indonesia. Met deze mooie woorden werd ik vanmorgen cq vannacht wakker.
Er zijn geen moeilijkheden in mijn leven en tóch kreeg ik dit mooie koor dóór.
Vandaag ga ik mét Gods hulp anderen bij maken, verrassen en samen God prijzen om zijn ééuwige Liefde, Trouw en ééuwige nabijheid.
I KNOW THE LORD WILL MAKE A WAY FOR ME. Thank you dear God.

My hymnal has this version...

Verse 1
I know the Lord will make a way for me
I know the Lord will make a way for me
If I live a holy life
Shun the wrong and do the right
I know the Lord will make a way from me

Verse 2
When I need a helping hand He's there
And when I need a loving friend He's there
If I live a holy life
Shun the wrong and do the right
I know the Lord will make a way from me
