I Would Follow

Representative Text

1 Precious Saviour, I would follow,
Where Thy blessed feet have trod,
O’er the mountains, thro' the desert,
To the city of my God.

I would follow where Thou leadest,
Thou my Saviour, Friend so kind,
Till, my pilgrim journey ended,
Perfect rest with Thee I find.

2 Weary often, I may falter,
But I cannot, cannot fall,
For Thy tender arms will hold me,
Thou wilt answer when I call. [Chorus]

3 By the lowly, to the dying,
I would whisper words of love,
Point the wand’rer to the pathway,
Leading to the home above. [Chorus]

4 In the sunshine, ‘mid the shadows,
Singing ever, day and night,
I would follow in Thy footsteps,
Out of darkness into light. [Chorus]
