Are You Following Jesus

Representative 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.

Chorus:
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]
