    I have in my possession a copy of a poem which is older than the oldest version on the internet. It was given to me in 1968 by an elderly church lady who said she had possessed the copy for over 50 years. I believe all other versions are a variant or retelling of this original. I believe this version is better told and better syntax. You be the judge.

    A man had died, and he entered a room where Christ was seated. Christ bade him to sit down and tell about his life. The man explained how he had been faithful to the Lord. He had some pretty rough times, but he got through. Then a vision was shown to the man and was asked if he knew what it was. The man replied that it was a path on which were footprints. Then Christ told him that it was the path he had trod while on the earth. The man noticed that there were two sets of footprints side by side on the path. Christ said, “I walked beside you on this path.” Then the path went on. The road became rocky and soon there was only one set of footprints on the path. The man turned towards Christ and said, “Why did you walk beside me and help men when the path was smooth and easy, but as soon as the road was rocky and I needed your help so badly, you left me and made me walk it alone? I thought you loved me.” Christ truned to the man with tears in his eyes and said, “I never left you, that’s when I carried you.”
