Come Follow Me


“For to this you have been called, because Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example, so that you might follow in his steps.” 1 Peter 2:21


“Come follow Me,”

Lord, I hear You say,

“Come follow Me,

Follow now My way.”


“Straight and narrow

Is this way I lead,

It leads to Heaven,

I fill every need.”


“The flowers of virtue

Blossom and grow

Upon the sacred way

Which I now go.”


“Storms may come,

But I calm them all,

I promise to carry

When you stumble or fall.”


“So come follow Me,

Stay nigh unto My side;

Come follow Me,

With Me do abide.”


“Treasures I have for you,

So many in store;

How can I do less

For the child I adore?”


“Take My hand, daughter,

See how I love you?

I will show you the way,

Teach you what to do.”


“Shower You with love,

Surround You with grace,

Lead you with light,

Warm with My embrace,”


“For no path is like this,

None is perfect like Mine;

Surely it is a pathway

Sacred and divine.”


“So come follow Me,

Cling to My hand,

Faithfully I lead you

To the Promised Land.”


Yes, follow You, Jesus,

This I promise to do;

How can I do any less

When I adore You?


Straight and narrow

Is this way You lead,

You take me to Heaven,

You fill every need.


So I will follow You,

I savor all You say;

O Jesus, I will follow You

On Your wondrous way.
