I can see Jesus standing behind him
When my enemy crosses my path.
When tempted towards evil for evil,
I can see Jesus standing in back.
And His eyes always seem to be saying,
"Do you believe what I've told you is true?
If you truly claim me as Master,
Then don't do what I wouldn't do."
Sometimes I don't see Him til later,
After I've failed the test;
And I'm ashamed I didn't remember
That His way is always the best.
He's teaching me little by little
To wear the other man's shoes;
For I bring Him no glory
When I do what He wouldn't do.

For to this you were called, because Christ
also suffered for us, leaving us an example,
that you should follow His steps. (I Peter 2:21)
