Footsteps of Jesus

Representative Text

1 Come follow in the footsteps
Which Jesus left for thee;
Those footprints, mark'd so plainly,
May your example be.

Come follow in the footsteps
Jesus left for thee,
Oh, let the blessed Savior
Your example be.

2 Jesus for us has traveled
The path of grief within;
He lived a life of sorrow,
But yet He knew not sin. [Chorus]

3 And He has left bright footsteps,
By His example given;
If in His steps we follow,
We'll rest with Him in heaven. [Chorus]

4 Then follow in those footsteps,
Which you may plainly see;
Let Christ, by His example,
Your perfect Pattern be. [Chorus]
