Wherever I may wander,
Wherever I may be,
Oh! dying love of Jesus,
I pray Thee, follow me.

Refrain

O come and sing His praises,
Ye ransomed of the Lord;
Sing forth the love of Jesus,
Who saves us by His blood.

When sunshine streams upon me,
When friends beloved are near,
Oh! dying love of Jesus,
Do Thou be doubly dear.

Refrain

And when my bark is drifting,
Upon a stormy sea,
Oh! dying love of Jesus,
Speak peace and calm to me.

Refrain

His dying love has conquered
The heart he came to win,
With all my soul I love Him,
And hate my every sin.

Refrain

And now my heart is dwelling,
Where Jesus dwells above,
And over me He spreadeth
The banner of His love.
