Follow all the way

Full Text

1 I can hear my Saviour calling,
In the tend'rest accents calling;
On my ear these words are falling,
Come and follow, daily follow me."

Chorus:
I will take my cross and follow.
My dear Saviour I will follow;
Where he leads me I will follow,
I'll go with him, with all the way.

2 Tho' the way be dark and dreary,
Tho' my feet be worn and weary,
Yet my heart keeps bright and cheery
As I follow, follow all the way. [Chorus]

3 Jesus, ever go before me,
Shining heaven's sunlight o'er me,
And when weak, by grace restore me
As I follow, follow all the way. [Chorus]

4 Thro' the valley safely lead me,
Heav'nly manna daily feed me;
Ev'ry hour, dear Lord, I need thee
As I follow, follow all the way. [Chorus]

5 In thy heart's affection, hold me,
In thy arms of love enfold me,
And with thine own grace uphold me,
As I follow, follow all the way. [Chorus]
