1 Are you walking in his footsteps,
Are you always doing good,
Do you follow after Jesus
As sincerely as you should?
Do you travel in the pathway
That will shine with brighter light,
Till you reach the mansions yonder,
In the land of pure delight?

Refrain:
Are you walking in his footsteps?
Are you always doing good?
Do you follow after Jesus
As sincerely as you should?

2 Are you walking in his footsteps,
Do you ever seek the lost
In the mountain and the desert,
Whatsoe’er may be the cost?
In the highways and the byways,
Are your footsteps ever found,
Where his wounded feet and bleeding,
Left their marks upon the ground? [Refrain]

3 Are you walking in his footsteps,
As he bids you daily do,
Do you follow near the Savior,
With him constantly in view?
In the sunshine and the shadow,
In the darkness and the light,
Are you pressing in your journey
To the land of pure delight? [Refrain]
