467. Footprints of Jesus

1 Sweetly, Lord, have we heard Thee calling,
"Come, follow Me!"
And we see where Thy footprints falling
Lead us to Thee.

Chorus:
Footprints of Jesus, that make the pathway glow!
We will follow the steps of Jesus where’er they go.

2 Tho' they lead o’er the cold, dark mountains,
Seeking His sheep;
Or along by Siloam’s fountains,
Helping the weak: (Chorus)

3 If they lead thro' the temple holy,
Preaching the Word;
Or in homes of the poor and lowly,
Serving the Lord: (Chorus)

4 Then, at last, when on high He sees us,
Our journey done,
We will rest where the steps of Jesus
End at His throne. (Chorus)
