1 Follow the steps of Jesus,
Follow ev'ry day;
Turn not aside nor falter,
Keep the narrow way.
Jesus the meek and lowly
Walked thro' life below,
Marking a beaten pathway,
O in that pathway go.

O follow, follow gladly,
In the path your Lord has trod,
He is your light
By day and night,
He leadeth you to God;
O follow, follow gladly,
There are blessings on the way;
Turn not aside,
But watch your Guide,
Who leads you to endless day.

2 Oft on a lonely mountain;
Oft 'neath olive's shade,
Jesus your great Example,
King and Saviour prayed.
Now in His footsteps follow,
Lead a life of pray'r,
He is a home preparing,
You shall His glory share. [Refrain]

3 Helping the weak and weary,
Christ your Saviour went,
Seek now to be His stewards
On His work intent.
Seek out the heavy hearted,
Seek the lost one too;
Follow the steps of Jesus,
Do what He'd have you do. [Refrain]
