Representative Text

WHO’LL be the next to follow Jesus?
Who’ll be the next his cross to bear?
Someone is ready, someone is waiting;
Who’ll be the next a crown to wear?

Refrain:
Who’ll be the next, who’ll be the next?
Who’ll be the next to follow Jesus?
Who’ll be the next to follow les us now?
Follow Jesus now!

2 Who’ll be the next to follow Jesus?
Come and bow at his precious feet;
Who’ll be the next to lay every burden
Down at the Father’s mercy seat?

3 Who’ll be the next to follow Jesus?
Who’ll be the next to praise his name?
Who’ll swell the chorus of free redemption,
Sing hallelujah, praise the Lamb?

4 Who’ll be the next to follow Jesus
Down through the Jordan’s rolling tide?
Who’ll be the next to join with the ransomed
Singing upon the other side?
