A Minister's View

Johnny Cash has always been thought of as a person of faith. I thought it was interesting that these lyrics say a lot about how I feel about the lives of my church members. What would I be if I did not live the life a preach? What would I be if I were silent when I watched those that I love lose their faith?

The lives of these that I love, from my wife, children, to each of those precious souls at a little church in a little town deserve for me to walk a good line. Not trying to be something I am not, or become something I cannot be, but I can try to be more than I have been. Instead of quiet, I can be vocal, because one precious soul is worth more to me than a job!!

I Walk The Line Lyrics

I keep a close watch on this heart of mine
I keep my eyes wide open all the time
I keep the ends out for the tie that binds
Because you're mine, I walk the line

I find it very, very easy to be true
I find myself alone when each day is through
Yes, I'll admit that I'm a fool for you
Because you're mine, I walk the line

As sure as night is dark and day is light
I keep you on my mind both day and night
And happiness I've known proves that it's right
Because you're mine, I walk the line

You've got a way to keep me on your side
You give me cause for love that I can't hide
For you I know I'd even try to turn the tide
Because you're mine, I walk the line

I keep a close watch on this heart of mine
I keep my eyes wide open all the time
I keep the ends out for the tie that binds
Because you're mine, I walk the line
