Are You Following Jesus

Full Text

1 Are you following Jesus, your Master,
The Shepherd who cares for the sheep?
He is calling the lambs to his pasture,
His own he will tenderly keep.

Are you following Jesus?
He calls you today;
He will guide you and keep you,
If you will but walk in his way.

2 Are you following Jesus most truly,
Too earnest and loving to roam?
Do you look unto him in the darkness,
And trust him to lead you safe home? [Chorus]

3 Do you daily look up to your Leader?
His voice do you listen to hear?
When he calls you by name, only follow,
And you will have nothing to fear. [Chorus]
