Representative Text

1 Jesus, my Savior, what didst Thou see
Which made Thee suffer and die for me?
I saw thee wandering far off from Me;
In love I seek for thee; do not flee!

2 O I will follow Thee, star of my soul,
Through the deep shades of life to the goal.
Yes, let Thy cross be borne each day by me;
Mind not how heavy, if but with Thee.

3 Lord, if Thou only wilt make me Thine own,
Give no companion, save Thee alone.
Grant through each day of life to stand by Thee;
With Thee when morning breaks, ever to be.
