Representative Text

1 Trusting Jesus, trusting ev’ry day,
Trusting Jesus all along the way;
Trusting Him we never can fall,
He will hear whenever we call;
Swift to answer is the King who rules us all.

Chorus:
We will follow Thee,
We will follow Thee,
Tho’ the way be rugged and steep,
Tho’ it leads us over the deep;
We will follow Thee,
We will follow Thee,
Thou wilt guide in tenderest care and safely keep.

2 Loving Jesus, who in deepest love
Came in mercy from His throne above;
Unto Him we fervently pray,
As we journey over the way,
We may love and serve Him better ev’ry day. [Chorus]

3 In a world of sorrow and distress,
Bearing burdens that so heavy press,
Cheerful words will brighten the way,
Willing hands will lighten the day;
“Ye have done it unto me,” shall Jesus say. [Chorus]
