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.

Follow all the way

Representative 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."

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]
