1 Following the Master,
In a world of sorrow,
As He scatters blessings
On the nations ‘round,
Feeding starving thousands
With the bread of heaven,
And the hungry people
Seated on the ground.

Refrain:
Following the blessed Lord,
Following the blessed Lord,
Following in sorrow,
Following in triumph,
Wheresoe’er He leadeth,
Following the Lord.

2 Following the Master,
In the garden gloomy,
Where the bloody sweat drops
Bathe His tender face,
Where He pleads the Father,
In the time of sorrow;
He will lead us gently
Thro’ this lonely place. [Refrain]

3 Following the Master,
In the throng asurging,
Crying out their anger
In most cruel sounds;
Scourging Him with whip-cords,
And with thorns they crown Him,
On the cross they nail Him.
See! those bloody wounds! [Refrain]

4 Following the Master,
Up into the glory
Of the Father’s mansions
Far above the skies;
O, Thou blessed Master,
How the heart rejoices
In the day of triumph;
Hallelujah rise. [Refrain]
