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

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]
