1 The world looks very beautiful
And full of joy to me;
The sun shines out in glory bright,
On every thing I see.
I know I shall be happy,
While in the world I stay,
For I will follow Jesus,
For I will follow Jesus,
Yes, I will follow Jesus,
Follow Jesus all the way.

2 I’m but a little pilgrim here,
My journey’s just begun;
They tell me I shall sorrow meet
Before my journey’s done.
The world is full of sorrow
And suffering, they say—
But I will follow Jesus,
But I will follow Jesus,
Yes, I will follow Jesus,
Follow Jesus all the way.

3 Then on my little pilgrimage
Whatever I may meet,
I’ll take it—joy and sorrow all
And lay at Jesus’ feet.
He’ll comfort me in trouble,
He’ll wipe my tears away;
With joy I’ll follow Jesus,
With joy I’ll follow Jesus,
With joy I’ll follow Jesus,
Follow Jesus all the way.

4 Then trials cannot weigh me down,
And pain I need not fear;
For when I’m close by Jesus’ side,
Grief cannot come too near.
Not even death can harm me,
When death I meet one day,
To Heav’n I’ll follow Jesus,
To Heav’n I’ll follow Jesus,
To Heav’n I’ll follow Jesus,
Follow Jesus all the way.
