Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

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.

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]
