I have wandered far away,
Savior, from Thy path astray;
Like a weary child I come,
Seeking rest and peace in Thee.


I will follow Thee, yes, I will follow Thee,
Wheresoe’er Thou leadest I will go;
I will follow Thee, yes, I will follow Thee,
Follow where Thou leadest me.

Teach me all Thy grace to know,
As the thorny way I go,
Help me curb my stubborn will,
Yielding gently unto Thee.


There’s no joy apart from Thee,
Long I sought it faithfully;
Now I give myself and all,
Give up all and follow Thee.
