Savior, where Thou lead­est,
We will fol­low Thee;
Where Thy lambs Thou feed­est,
We will fol­low Thee;
By Thy lov­ing smile at­tend­ed,
By Thy gen­tle hand de­fend­ed,
Till this mor­tal life is end­ed,
We will fol­low Thee.

In our child­hood’s morn­ing,
We will fol­low Thee;
We have heard Thy warn­ing,
We will fol­low Thee;
If our feet are some­times wea­ry,
And the way seems long and drea­ry,
Thou wilt speak and we will hear Thee,
We will fol­low Thee.

In our joy and glad­ness,
We will fol­low Thee;
In our times of sad­ness,
We will fol­low Thee;
Thou wilt give us, with­out mea­sure,
Richest bless­ings, pur­est plea­sure,
And in Heav’n, a price­less trea­sure.
We will follow Thee.
