Follow Me

V1
Lord above all mere existence
Condescended King who crossed
That impassable sin-distance
To restore what man had lost
Christ departed Heaven’s glory
When my heart would ever roam
To fulfill redemption’s story
And to bring this wand’rer home

C
The Lamb and Lion of the tribe of Judah
Went to the cross and won the victory
I cannot keep from singing, “Hallelujah!”
His sacrifice and triumph set me free
So, I will heed His call: “Follow me”

V2
My companion on this journey
To the Sovereign’s holy throne:
My High Priest, has gone before me
Not a step I walk alone
When the passage leads through valleys
In this dark and weary land
This His promise: never shall these
Separate me from His hand

V3
All the days of my sojourning
He shall lead me t’ward the goal
Through my wavering and turning
For His praise, preserves my soul
Until death, that final portal
I traverse the trail He blazed
What assurance mine! Though mortal
Unto life I shall be raised

B
From the grave to glory
From the tomb to triumph
From the darkness to the dawn
I’ll follow Christ who bids me come
