I Will Follow


I will follow Him,
On wings of the morning,
And fly to the utmost sea,
For tis there I can rest and I am blest,
Just to hear His words for me.

I will follow Him,
Up Golgotha's dark hill,
And there will I weep in pain,
Then to see Jesus cry and lastly die,
Will break my sad heart in twain.

I will follow Him,
Like a wandering child,
Who lost his strength for the day,
Yet if I can just see His love for me,
Then His peace will with me stay.

I will follow Him,
Through the damp city streets,
And the mighty rambling throng,
As the cold rain falls and the twilight calls,
By His side I will belong.

I will follow Him,
And reach up to His hand,
As the desert we pass through,
Though the sun burns hot and shelter is sought,
He'll give me a song anew.

I will follow Christ,
For my gaze is now set,
On my home beyond the sky,
I will strive for the right and win this fight,
By His grace I'll live on high.

The world is full of meat and drink,

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
