1 I’ll follow Jesus here, I’ll never, never fear,
Tho’ Satan’s tempting pow’rs assail;
And tho’ I’m tempted sore,
I’ll trust Him evermore,
For thro’ His grace I shall prevail.

I’ll follow, I’ll follow,
I’ll follow Jesus all the way;
I’ll follow, I’ll follow,
To the home of everlasting day.

2 I’ll follow by His side, whatever may betide,
Tho’ perils thickly throng the way;
Tho’ billows deep may roll, there’s naught can harm my soul,
For He is with me night and day. [Refrain]

3 I’ll follow all the way, I’ll never, never stray,
This world no more can win my love;
I’ve left it all behind, more lasting joys to find,
My treasures all are stored above. [Refrain]

4 I’ll follow, follow on until the crown is won,
And heaven’s gates unfold to me;
Then with my harp in hand I’ll join that happy band,
And praise Him thro’ eternity. [Refrain]
