Follow Me! A call so ten­der
Falls up­on my list­en­ing ear;
’Tis the voice of Christ, my Sav­ior,
’Tis the Shep­herd’s call I hear.


O that call! Lov­ing call!
’Tis the sweet­est voice of all.
How it draws me near­er to Him
When I hear my Shep­herd’s call!

Into pas­tures green He leadeth,
His own sheep He calls by name;
When their feet are sore and wea­ry,
In His arms He car­ries them.


Little flock, fear not! He shields thee
From the dan­gers of the land.
Hear His pro­mise: None shall ev­er
Pluck thee from His migh­ty hand.


In His steps, then, I would fol­low,
Seek in Him my all in all;
I am safe, what­e’er be­falls me,
When I heed His ten­der call.
