Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

649. I'll Follow Jesus

1 I’ll follow Jesus here, I’ll never, never fear,
Though Satan’s tempting pow’rs assail;
And though I’m tempted sore, I’ll trust Him evermore,
For through His grace I shall prevail.

Refrain:
I’ll follow, I’ll follow,
I’ll follow Jesus all the way;
I’ll follow, I’ll follow,
To the home of everlasting day.

2 I’ll follow by His side, whatever may betide,
Though perils thickly throng the way;
Though billows deep may roll, there’s naught can harm my soul,
For He is with me night and day. [Refrain]

3 I’ll follow all the way, I’ll never, never stray,
This world no more can win my love;
I’ve left it all behind, more lasting joys to find,
My treasures all are stored above. [Refrain]

4 I’ll follow, follow on until the crown is won,
And heaven’s gates unfold to me;
Then with my harp in hand, I’ll join that happy band,
And praise Him through eternity. [Refrain]
