Representative Text

1 I will follow thee, my Saviour,
Tho' the days be dark or bright;
Tho' the path be overshadowed,
For with thee is joy and light.

I will follow thee, my Saviour,
And I will not fear to keep,
With my hand in thine, the pathway,
Tho' the stormclouds o'er me sweep.

2 I will follow thee, my Saviour,
Lead me wheresoe'er thou will;
Tho' I pass thro' clouds and darkness,
Thou wilt be my comfort still. [Chorus]

3 I will follow thee, my Saviour,
Glad, rejoicing thus to be
Walking with thee, hourly, daily,
Sharing in thy mercy free. [Chorus]
