Lyrics

Where He leads me I will follow,
E’en though rough the path before;
I will trust the blessèd Savior,
Till the weary strife is o’er.

Refrain

Where He leads me I will follow;
I would heed the Gospel call;
This the watchword, pass it onward—
All for Jesus, all, yes, all.

Where He leads me I will follow,
Asking not the way to know;
At the Lord’s command I’ll take me
Whersoe’er He bids me go.

Refrain

Where He leads me I will follow,
In His footsteps all the way;
Soon the conflict will be ended;
Soon will dawn a better day.

Refrain

Where He leads me I will follow;
This the strength, O Lord, I crave;
If Thou wilt, oh, make me useful,
Some poor dying soul to save.
