Representative Text

1. If in the valley where the bright waters flow,
Jesus, my Savior leads me, gladly I’ll go;
If, by His hand directed o’er ocean’s wave,
Gladly I’ll bear His message, lost ones to save.

Refrain
Where the Savior leads me,
I will gladly follow,
Where the loving Savior leads me,
I will gladly go.

2. Out on the barren mountains, dreary and cold,
Seeking the sheep that wander far from the fold;
Storm clouds may frown above me, fierce winds may blow,
Yet, if my Savior leads me, onward I’ll go. [Refrain]

3. Where’er the Savior leads me, I’ll follow still,
Patient in joy or sorrow, biding His will;
He knows the path of safety, He knows the way,
Home to the many mansions, bright, bright as day. [Refrain]
