1 Savior, I will follow Thee;
Thou art all the world to me;
Tho’ the way I cannot see,
Savior, I will follow Thee.

Chorus:
Follow Thee, I will follow Thee,
Follow Thee, I will follow Thee;
Follow till the day is done,
Follow till the crown is won,
Savior, I will follow Thee.

2 Savior, I will follow Thee,
Tho’ it lead me to the cross;
Counting all things here but dross,
Savior, I will follow Thee. (Chorus)

3 Savior, I will follow Thee,
Tho’ it lead through toil and tears;
Through the long and weary years,
Savior, I will follow Thee. (Chorus)

4 Savior, I will follow Thee
Till the toils of life are o’er;
Till I reach the golden shore,
Savior, I will follow Thee. (Chorus)

His father was an excellent singer, and it always delighted the son to sit by his side and hear him sing the songs of the church. Outside of the usual time spent in the public schools, Mr. Oatman received his education at Herbert's Academy, Princetown, N. J., and the New Jersey Collegiate Institute, Bordentown, N. J.
