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.

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

Representative Text

1 Hark, ‘tis the Master! he’s calling you today,
Follow where his voice is guiding;
Look for his footprints along the heav’nward way,
Follow where his voice is guiding.
He who lives forevermore,
Trod this earthly path before,
Knows its dangers, knows its grief,
He will send your soul relief.

Follow, follow, where his voice is guiding,
Follow, follow, where his voice is guiding,
Follow where his voice is guiding,
Follow, follow, follow on.

2 New fields of blessing will open to your view,
Follow where his voice is guiding;
Seeking his Spirit, your daily strength renew,
Follow where his voice is guiding.
Pressing onward, glad and free,
Sweeter will his service be,
Richer his rewards of love,
Foretastes of the feast above. [Refrain]

3 What tho’ temptations may beckon you aside?
Follow where his voice is guiding;
Under his banner in loyalty abide,
Follow where his voice is guiding.
Though the way seem hard and long,
Faith will sing her cheery song;
Soon we’ll lay the burdens down,
Then the palm, the harp, the crown. [Refrain]
