1 Other folks may not approve me,
What is that to me? ‘Til life is done
I will try to please my Saviour,
And let the weary world roll on.

Refrain:
I care not what the world may say,
I am walking the narrow way,
And as long as I live therein I’ll stay,
For Jesus says that He will keep me;
And I know that He will be at my side,
My Companions, my Friend and Guide,
And with Him I shall brave old Jordan’s tide,
And let the weary world roll on.

2 Let their evil tongues assail me
From the early morn ‘til day is done;
I will take it all to Jesus,
And let the weary world roll on. [Refrain]

3 I will do as Jesus bids me
I’ll forgive them all as He has done.
Let Him only smile upon me,
I’ll let the weary world roll on. [Refrain]
