40. Following Jesus

1 Following Jesus, following Jesus,
Gently He leads me in the heavenly way;
Watching and praying, trusting, obeying,
He will restrain me from going astray.

Refrain:
Following Jesus, following Jesus,
Following Jesus by day and by night;
Watching and praying, trusting, obeying,
He is my helper in doing the right.

2 Following Jesus, following Jesus,
He who has suffered to redeem me from sin;
Oh, what a blessing, while I’m confessing,
He in His fullness is reigning within. [Refrain]

3 Following Jesus, following Jesus,
I am delighted with His wonderful love;
While I’m confiding, in Him I’m hiding,
Soon I shall meet Him in heaven above. [Refrain]

4 Following Jesus, following Jesus,
This is my duty for His goodness to me;
Joyful in glory, telling the story,
How in His favor I’m happy and free. [Refrain]
