1 Others may choose this vain world if they will,
I will follow Jesus;
All else forsaking, will cleave to Him still,
I will follow Him.

Chorus:
Whensoever He needs me,
Wheresoever He leads me,
Whatsoever He bids me do,
I will be true to Jesus.

2 Fully and freely the choice I have made,
I will follow Jesus;
All on the altar for Him I have laid,
I will follow Him. [Chorus]

3 Walking by faith where my eyes cannot see,
I will follow Jesus,
Holding the hand that was wounded for me,
I will follow Him. [Chorus]

4 Fairest of all in ten thousand is He,
I will follow Jesus;
Till in His glory the King I shall see,
I will follow Him. [Chorus]

Lelia (Mrs. C.H.) Morris (1862-1929) was born in Pennsville, Morgan County, Ohio. When her family moved to Malta on the Muskingum River she and her sister and mother had a millinery shop in McConnelsville. She and her husband Charles H. Morris were active in the Methodist Episcopal Church and at the camp meetings in Sebring and Mt. Vernon. She wrote hymns as she did her housework. Although she became blind at age 52 she continued to write hymns on a 28-foot long blackboard that her family had built for her. She is said to have written 1000 texts and many tunes including "Sweeter as the years go by." Mary Louise VanDyke Go to person page >
