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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Hear the voice of Jesus calling—
Follow me, follow me,
Hear His loving accents falling,—
Follow me, follow me.
Wilt thou not His voice obey?
Why a moment yet delay?
Wilt thou not this moment say:
Lord, I’ll follow Thee.

Refrain:
Wheresoever thou dost go,
I’ll follow Thee, follow Thee,
While I travel here below,
Dear Lord, I’ll follow Thee.

2 Hear Him still in earnest pleading—
Follow me, follow me!
If salvation thou art needing,
Follow me, follow me.
Wilt thou not by Him be led?
Be by Him on manna fed?
Say, as thou His footsteps tread—
“Lord, I’ll follow Thee.” [Refrain]

3 What an urgent invitation,
Follow me, follow me!
Giv’n to souls of ev’ry nation,
Follow me, follow me!
Thro’ the wilderness of life,
Thro’ its turmoil, care and strife,
Be its blessings few or rife,
Lord, I’ll follow Thee! [Refrain]
