Full Text

1 I’ll follow Jesus here, I’ll never, never fear,
Though Satan’s tempting pow’rs assail;
And though I’m tempted sore, I’ll trust Him evermore,
For through His grace I shall prevail.

Refrain:
I’ll follow, I’ll follow,
I’ll follow Jesus all the way;
I’ll follow, I’ll follow,
To the home of everlasting day.

2 I’ll follow by His side, whatever may betide,
Though perils thickly throng the way;
Though billows deep may roll, there’s naught can harm my soul,
For He is with me night and day. [Refrain]

3 I’ll follow all the way, I’ll never, never stray,
This world no more can win my love;
I’ve left it all behind, more lasting joys to find,
My treasures all are stored above. [Refrain]

4 I’ll follow, follow on until the crown is won,
And heaven’s gates unfold to me;
Then with my harp in hand, I’ll join that happy band,
And praise Him through eternity. [Refrain]

He toured eastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey for several months each year till 1895. He became a very active evangelist and song writer, holding meetings in every American state and in Britain. --www.hymntime.com/tch… Go to person page >
