Lyrics

Savior, I will follow Thee;
Thou art all the world to me;
Tho’ the way I cannot see,
Savior, I will follow Thee.

Refrain

Follow Thee, I will follow Thee,
Follow Thee, I will follow Thee;
Follow till the day is done,
Follow till the crown is won,
Savior, I will follow Thee.

Savior, I will follow Thee,
Tho’ it lead me to the cross;
Counting all things here but dross,
Savior, I will follow Thee.

Refrain

Savior, I will follow Thee,
Tho’ it lead through toil and tears;
Through the long and weary years,
Savior, I will follow Thee.

Refrain

Savior, I will follow Thee
Till the toils of life are o’er;
Till I reach the golden shore,
Savior, I will follow Thee.
