1 If duty calls, and suffering, too,
My Lord! I’d follow Thee;
As Thou hast done, so would I do,
As Thou art, would I be.
2 With zeal inflamed, ’twas Thy delight
To do Thy Father’s will;
May the same zeal my soul excite
Thy precepts to fulfill.
3 Meekness, humility, and love
Did through Thy conduct shine;
O may my whole deportment prove
A copy, Lord! of Thine.
4 Depending on Thy sovereign grace,
I’ll tread the heavenly road;
With willing mind Thy footsteps trace,
And climb to Thine abode.
5 O let me run the Christian race
With diligence and speed!
God’s word, His Spirit, and His grace,
Do all to duty lead.
6 Did Jesus leave the realms of bliss
To save from sin and hell?
A love so wonderful as this
Calls for a glowing zeal.
