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.
Harry Plantinga

Precious Savior, 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]
