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, 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.

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]
