Follow Me

Full Text

1 "Come, follow me," oh, sweet command,
Which Jesus gave his little band;
And still we hear the tender plea,
"Come, take thy cross, and follow me."

Chorus:
Come, follow me, Come follow me,
From sin and doubt and fear set free,
Come, learn of me, and do my will,
Oh, follow, follow, closer still.

2 Oh, fear the Saviour, heed his word,
Obey the precepts daily heard,
And love the Friend so true and tried,
For hark! he calls you to his side. [Chorus]

3 Then live to make the Saviour known,
And own him as your Lord alone;
Go, work for Jesus, hear his call,
And cleave to him, forsaking all. [Chorus]
