Representative Text

1 The Saviour calls thee to His side,
To follow all the way,
And bids thee whatsoe’er betide,
His blessed will obey.

Oh, weary one, come, hear His voice,
For lo! He speaks to thee,
And bids thee make His will thy choice,
If thou wouldst happy be.

2 He has a plan for ev’ry life,
A path for each to take;
Then let Him lead thro’ calm or strife,
And thee He’ll ne’er forsake. [Refrain]

3 He only asks a willing heart,
Submissive to His own,
Surrendered wholly, not in part,
And ruled by Him alone. [Refrain]

4 Then linger not behind thy Guide,
Nor hurry on before,
But step by step, and at His side,
Go forward evermore. [Refrain]
