Not a cry for help! I just can't find the lyrics of this spiritual anywhere. Any thoughts?

Can you give us a couple more clues about it?

The only song I can think of with the phrase "I want Jesus" is "Do, Lord".

What words to your song do you already know?

The only lyrics I remember are ... I want jesus to walk with me (repeat) When my head is bowed down in sorrow I want jesus to walk with me

I will see my golden angel there (repeat)

or something like that....

I looked a lot of different places for any of these lyrics you posted but had no luck. Evidently, though, there are several versions of "I Want Jesus To Walk With Me" but I didn't find your exact lyrics in any version--and there's another song called "I Want Jesus," although no lyrics were posted so I don't know if it's the same song or not. Mississippi Fred McDowell wrote a song called "I Just Want Jesus to Walk With Me" but again, I don't think it's the one you want: HERE

Sorry I couldn't help. Maybe someone else here, can.

Hi, Les - I was wondering if it could be Give Me Jesus (click).

Hi, Les - I should have paid attention to your second post. Click here for a rather nice choral recording. You'll find a rather tacky MIDI on this page (click). But I really don't know if those are the song you're seeking, either.

Well, I don't know if this is the one you want, but it's a nice song. It's #521 in the United Methodist Hymnal. I'm glad you helped me come across it.
-Joe Offer-
I WANT JESUS TO WALK WITH ME
(traditional Afro-American Spiritual)

I want Jesus to walk with me, (walk with me)
I want Jesus to walk with me, (walk with me)
All along my pilgrim journey,
Lord, I want Jesus to walk with me, (walk with me)

In my trials, Lord, walk with me, (walk with me)
In my trials, Lord, walk with me, (walk with me)
When my heart is almost breaking,
Lord, I want Jesus to walk with me, (walk with me)

When I'm troubled, Lord, walk with me, (walk with me)
When I'm troubled, Lord, walk with me, (walk with me)
When my head is bowed in sorrow,
Lord, I want Jesus to walk with me, (walk with me)

JRO^^

Gypsy, Hey!!! I dunno a whole LOTTA songs!!! I only been doing this since 1990!

This is a new one for me. When I get sound problems straightened out I'll learn this. We'll do it in a Saturday night service. C'mon over if ya know it, and teach me!

I have another one to post too, I'll do it in a few days, and make a new thread. Another great spiritual I never saw anywhere else. Maybe Beanster can find some info for me.

And hey, BEANSTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hi!!!!!

Oh yeah, forgot to tell ya-- I'll do this on SLIDE GEETAR!!!! (Yes Joe, I have begun to slide. It IS a slippery slope.) Two Mudcatters are helping me give in to this temptation! (Should I post all the PM's as a thread????)

I came across this today in Songs of Zion (Verolga Nix). It's great to have the Mudcat MIDI resources to grab tunes, too, and I wonder of people know how easy it is to save (and transpose) MIDI files into printable sheet music?

We will be doing this in church Saturday night, and I can't wait to hear it in our old-stone acoustics.

And this is a great one for the "floating verses" approach. Here are a few.

I want Jesus to pray with me (pray with me)
I want Jesus to pray with me (pray with me)
When my heart is heavy laden
Lord, I want Jesus to pray with me (pray with me)

I want Jesus to live with me (live with me)
I want Jesus to live with me (live with me)
Though my home is ever-changing
Lord, I want Jesus to live with me (live with me)

I want Jesus to talk with me (talk with me)
I want Jesus to talk with me (talk with me)
When my understanding needs to open
Lord, I want Jesus to talk with me (talk with me)

I want Jesus to deal with me (deal with me)
I want Jesus to deal with me (deal with me)
When at last my journey's over
Lord, I want Jesus to deal with me (deal with me)

~S~

In the spirit in which you wrote, CH, I reply-- As long as He can handle ME....

Trunk? Are you sure He ain't on your dashboard? You know He may not be visible to you at the moment. *G*

Remember now, YOU STARTED IT! LOL!

If he was on my dashboard, I'd be able to telly by the little sandle footy prints in the dust...

Besides... I can hear him kicking and tugging at the duct-tape every now and again... So I know he's still back there...
