Representative Text

1. We will follow Jesus,
Though we may be small;
Gladly may we listen
To His loving call.

Little ones may follow,
Follow all the way.
Jesus bids us follow
Every passing day.

2. We will follow Jesus,
Everywhere He leads;
Show Him unto others
By our loving deeds. [Refrain]

3. We will follow Jesus,
To the lands afar,
Till each tribe and nation
See the Morning Star. [Refrain]

4. Just to follow Jesus,
Makes the day seem bright,
Fills the heart with singing,
Through the darkest night. [Refrain]
