Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 O follow in His footsteps,
Along life’s weary way,
He trod the path before thee,
The blessed Son of God;
He knows when life looks dreary,
He hears thy ev’ry sigh;
O follow in His footsteps,
And meet Him by and by.

Follow where He leadeth,
Tho’ dark the way appear;
Glory lies before thee,
It may be very near.

2 O follow in His footsteps,
When bright the way and glad,
He looketh down from glory,
Make not thy Savior sad;
Do nothing that would grieve Him,
That Friend above all friends,
Give joy no pow’r to tempt thee,
If evil with it blends. [Refrain]

3 O follow in His footsteps,
In sickness or in health,
Cling closely to thy Savior,
In poverty or wealth,
No good thing He withholdeth,
No harm shall come to thee;
In foll’wing in His footsteps,
Thy life shall guarded be. [Refrain]
