If any man serve Me, let him follow Me; and where I am, there shall also My servant be: if any man serve Me, him will My Father honor.@John 12:26

Leaving all to follow Jesus,
Turning from the world away,
Stepping out upon the promise,
All I have is His today.

Refrain

Leaving all to follow Jesus,
Turning from the world away,
Stepping out upon His promise,
All I have is His today.

Naught reserving, on the altar
All I lay, and wait the hour
When the fire from Heaven descending
Shall attest His glorious pow’r.

Refrain

Taking up the cross of Jesus,
Glad for Him to suffer shame,
All my gain I count but losses
For the glory of His name.

Refrain

Praise His precious name forever
That His blood hath made me free!
Now my soul shall joy to tell it,
Thro’ the long eternity.
