Representative Text

1 Following Jesus just where He leads me,
Singing for gladness all the long way;
Up on the mountain, over the desert,
Kept by His goodness ev’ry day.

Following Jesus, blessed Redeemer,
Crowed by His goodness, and kept by His pow’r,
Ever rejoicing, singing for gladness,
Filled with His fulness hour by hour.

2 Following Jesus, tho’ so unworthy,
Fearlessly passing thro’ the dark night;
Trusting His promise, “Lo! I am with you,”
Shadows will vanish in His light. [Refrain]

3 Following Jesus into the valley,
Over the path He trod long ago;
Only a step from shadow to sunshine,
Leaning on Him whose love I know. [Refrain]

Lizzie De Armond was a prolific writer of children's hymns, recitations and exercises. When she was twelve years old her first poem was published in the Germantown, Pa. Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
