1 I’ll follow him, I’ll follow him
To pastures green and fair;
No fears alarm nor perils harm
When in the Shepherd’s care.
More bright the sunlit path shall seem,
The flow’rs more sweet shall be;
For in the pleasant paths of peace
My Lord is leading me.

Refrain:
Where he leads me I will follow,
Where he leads me I will follow;
Where he leads me I will follow,
I’ll go with him, with him all the way.

2 I’ll follow him, I’ll follow him
When thorny is the road,
When burdens press and cares distress,
And heavy is my load.
Yet in the sunshine of his love
The shadows all shall flee;
For in the path that once he trod
My Lord is leading me. [Refrain]

3 I’ll follow him, I’ll follow him
Down into death’s dark vale;
For in the shadows of earth’s night
His goodness shall not fail.
And when the river I shall cross,
His glorious face I’ll see;
For to his heav’nly home above
My Lord is leading me. [Refrain]
