45. 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.

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

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

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

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. (Refrain)
