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.

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. — Johnny Cash

Presumably, Mr. Cash wrote this song for his wife, June (nee Valerie June Carter). Guess what… God wants us to adore Him in the same way. He desires our worship.

I’m a fool for Him.

He’s on my mind night and day.

I can’t hide my love for Him.

Because He’s mine, I walk the line.
