1 Hark! the voice of Jesus calling,
"Follow me, follow me!"
Softly through the silence falling,
"Follow, follow me!"
As of old he called the fishers,
When he walked by Galilee,
Still his patient voice is pleading,
"Follow, follow me!"

2 Who will heed the holy mandate,
"Follow me, follow me?"
Leaving all things at his bidding,
"Follow, follow me!"
Hark! that tender voice entreating
Mariners on life's rough sea,
Gently, lovingly repeating,
"Follow, follow me!"

3 Hearken, lest he plead no longer,
"Follow me, follow me!"
Once again, O hear him calling,
"Follow, follow me!"
Turning swift at thy sweet summons,
Evermore, O Christ, would we,
For thy love all else forsaking,
"Follow, follow thee!"
