Representative Text

1 If I, like Galilee fishers,
Were mending my nets by the main,
And Jesus, coming, should call me,
He never should call in vain.

Refrain:
We'll follow the summons of Jesus,
Wherever, however it falls;
When high up the pathway he sees us,
And "Follow thou me!" he calls.

2 If I were dwelling in pleasure,
Or sitting in places of gain,
And Jesus, passing, should call me,
He never should call in vain. [Refrain]

3 If I were sinking in sadness,
Or dreading the cross and the pain,
And Jesus tenderly called me,
He never should call in vain. [Refrain]
