Full Text

1 Humble souls who seek salvation,
Thro' the Lamb's redeeming blood,
Hear the voice of recollection,
Tread the path that Jesus trod:
Flee to him your only savior,
In his mighty name confide;
Thro' the whole of your behavior,
Own him as your sovereign guide.

2 Hear the blest redeemer call you,
Listen to his gracious voice;
Dread no ills that can befal you,
While you make his ways your choice,
Jesus faith, let each believer,
Be baptised in my name;
He himself in Jordan's river,
Was immers'd beneath the stream.

3 Plainly here his footsteps tracing,
Follow him without delay;
Gladly his command embracing,
Lo! your captain leads the way;
View the rite with understanding,
Jesus' grave before you lies,
Be inter'd at his commanding,
After his example rise.

Divine Hymns of Spiritual Songs, 1802

Author: John Fawcett

Fawcett, John, D.D., was born Jan. 6, 1739 or 1740, at Lidget Green, near Bradford, Yorks. Converted at the age of sixteen under the ministry of G. Whitefield, he at first joined the Methodists, but three years later united with the Baptist Church at Bradford. Having begun to preach he was, in 1765, ordained Baptist minister at Wainsgate, near Hebden Bridge, Yorks. In 1772 he was invited to London, to succeed the celebrated Dr. J. Gill, as pastor of Carter's Lane; the invitation had been formally accepted, the farewell sermon at Wainsgate had been preached and the wagons loaded with his goods for removal, when the love and tears of his attached people prevailed and he decided to remain. In 1777 a new chapel was built for him at Hebden Bridg… Go to person page >

Notes

Humble souls who seek salvation. J. Fawcett. [Follow the Lamb.] The earliest date to which we have traced this hymn (although probably it previously appeared in a magazine with which we are unacquainted) is in John Fellows's Hymns on Believers’ Baptism, 1773, No. 25, in 3 stanzas of 8 lines. It next appeared in John Fawcett's Hymns, &c, 1782, No. 117, with the heading "Invitation to follow the Lamb, Matt. iii. 15," and the following note:—

"The Author lays claim to this hymn, tho' it has appear'd under another name: he hopes the insertion of it, and the following ["Ye saints, with one accord"] will give no offence to those of his friends who are differently minded, as to the subject to which they refer."

With this note before us, we have no hesita¬tion in ascribing this hymn to John Fawcett. Its use is mainly confined to America.

--John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907)
