Follow Me.@John 1:43

Walter Hawkins, in Alleluia, edited by Franklin L. Sheppard (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania: Presbyterian Board of Publication, 1915), number 165.

Skara Bare J. Herbert Cleworth (🔊 pdf nwc).

Earth’s ten thousand voices
Daily rise and fall;
But there’s one within me
Clearer than them all.
’Tis the voice of Jesus;
And I do not know
When its tones first sounded,
’Tis so long ago.

As the days of childhood
Happily have sped,
Oft the voice has thrilled me:
Follow Me! it said.
Either in the accents
Of authority,
Or of love sore wounded,
As from Calvary.

Speak, Thy servant heareth;
Speak whate’er Thou wilt;
Let me know Thy mercy;
Let me know my guilt.
Conquer my perverseness;
Cure me of delay;
Save me, Lord and Savior,
Save—this very day.
