I have heard my Savior calling,
I have heard my Savior calling,
I have heard my Savior calling,
Take thy cross and follow, follow Me.

Refrain

Where He leads me I will follow,
Where He leads me I will follow,
Where He leads me I will follow,
I’ll go with Him, with Him all the way.

Tho’ He leads me thro’ the valley,
Tho’ He leads me thro’ the valley,
Tho’ He leads me thro’ the valley,
I’ll go with Him, with Him all the way.

Refrain

Tho’ He leads me thro’ the garden,
Tho’ He leads me thro’ the garden,
Tho’ He leads me thro’ the garden,
I’ll go with Him, with Him all the way.

Refrain

Tho’ He leads me thro’ the conflict,
Tho’ He leads me thro’ the conflict,
Tho’ He leads me thro’ the conflict,
I’ll go with Him, with Him all the way.

Refrain

Tho’ He leads thro’ fiery trials,
Tho’ He leads thro’ fiery trials,
Tho’ He leads thro’ fiery trials,
I’ll go with Him, with Him all the way.
