Lyrics

O walk in the foot­steps of Je­sus,
Child of His won­der­ful love;
O fol­low, for soon they will guide thee
Up to those man­sions above.

Refrain

Yes, walk in the foot­steps of Je­sus,
Keeping fast hold of His hand,
For thus will He guide thee and lead thee
On to the hea­ven­ly land.

O walk in the foot­steps of Je­sus,
Weary one, bur­dened with care,
Now lift up thine eyes un­to Hea­ven,
Lift up thy spir­it in pray­er.

Refrain

O walk in the foot­steps of Je­sus,
Mourning one, ov­er the dead,
For gent­ly His arms will en­fold thee,
Tenderly pil­low thy head.
