Lyrics

The Master is come and calleth
O brother, He calls for thee;
In tenderest tones He’s saying,
Arise and follow Me.

Refrain

Arise, arise,
Arise and follow Me
;
The Master is gently calling,
Arise and follow Me.

If thou wilt believe Him fully,
That He is the Christ indeed;
He’ll give to thee life eternal,
In this thy time of need.

Refrain

Then trust Him and bravely follow,
The Savior is kind and true;
O serve Him with joy and gladness,
He’s calling now for you.
