We Will Follow On

Representative Text

1 Where the Saviour's hand is leading,
We will follow, follow on;
His commands and warnings heeding,
We will follow on.

Follow on, follow on,
Till the heav'nly prize is won;
Till we grasp a shining crown,
Follow, follow on.

2 Where the Saviour's voice is calling,
We will follow, follow on;
Show'rs of grace upon us falling,
We will follow on. [Chorus]

3 In the way the star is showing,
We will follow, follow on;
To celestial mansions going,
We will follow on. [Chorus]

4 Still by faith our way pursuing,
We will follow, follow on;
Glad the land of promise viewing,
We will follow on. [Chorus]

5 'Neath the cross together banding,
We will follow, follow on;
Ever toward the golden landing,
We will follow on. [Chorus]
