If you know where to get a good pho­to of Mey­ers (head & shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els),


Follow Je­sus all the way,
Let Him ev­er be your stay;
Trust in His grace for keep­ing,
Trust while awake or sleep­ing,
Trust though in sad­ness weep­ing,
If you love the Lord.
All that re­ceive ho­ly call­ing
Face bit­ter tri­als ap­pal­ling,
He will pro­tect from fall­ing—
Those who love the Lord.

Follow in the path of good,
Walking hum­bly as you should;
What is there that can harm thee?
Satan with all his ar­my
Shall ne­ver­more al­arm thee,
Hiding in the Lord.
Jesus the light of the na­tion,
The liv­ing God of cre­ation,
Keeps by His great sal­va­tion
Those who love the Lord.

Follow Christ as child­ren dear,
Soon in glo­ry He’ll ap­pear;
Then you’ll ad­mire His com­ing,
Fear and con­fu­sion shun­ning,
Joy in your heart o’er­run­ning,
If you love the Lord.
Courage is strong­ly abid­ing,
If in His name you are hid­ing,
Meekly in Christ con­fid­ing,
If you love the Lord.
