Representative Text

1 Oh, I love to walk with Jesus
Like the publicans of old,
When He gathered them about Him
And the blessed tidings told;
How He came to bring deliv'rance
To the captives in distress,
Take away our ev’ry burden,
Giving perfect peace and rest.

I will follow where He leadeth,
I will pasture where He feedeth,
I will follow all the way, Lord,
I will follow Jesus ev’ry day.

2 Oh, I love to walk with Jesus
Like the man of long ago,
Who had tarried by the wayside
Near the gates of Jericho;
Jesus heard his cry for mercy,
Gave him back his sight that day,
And immediately he followed
Jesus all along the way. [Refrain]

3 Oh, I love to walk with Jesus
All the way to Calv’ry’s brow,
Gaze upon that scene of suff'ring,
While my tears of sorrow flow;
There He tells me how He loves me,
Takes my ev’ry sin away,
So I follow Him so gladly,
Lead me anywhere He may. [Refrain]

4 Oh, sometime I’ll walk with Jesus
In the land of endless day,
When our journey here is over
And we’ve reached our home to stay;
Then I’ll walk with Him forever
Sing His praises o’er and o’er,
Laugh and shout, and ever tell Him
That I love Him more and more. [Refrain]
