422. Savior, I Follow On

1 Savior, I follow on,
Guided by Thee,
Seeing not yet the hand
That leadeth me.
Hushed be my heart and still,
Fear I no further ill,
Only to meet Thy will
My will shall be.

2 Riven the rock for me
Thirst to relieve,
Manna from heaven falls
Fresh ev'ry eve;
Never a want severe
Causeth my eye a tear
But Thou dost whisper near,
"Only believe."

3 Often to Marah’s brink
Have I been brought;
Shrinking the cup to drink,
Help I have sought;
And with the prayer’s ascent
Jesus the branch hath rent,
Quickly relief hath sent,
Sweet'ning the draught.

4 Savior, I long to walk
Closer with Thee;
Led by Thy guiding hand
Ever to be
Constantly near Thy side,
Quickened and purified,
Living for Him who died
Freely for me.
