When I came to Jesus




When I came to Jesus,
Then my heart was sad;
But when He received me,
Then He made me glad.
Freely He forgave me,
Met my spiritís need;
Then He bade me follow
Whither He would lead.

I will follow Jesus,
Follow all the day;
Walking in His footsteps
Closely all the way.



Oft in hours of trial
I have gone away,
Into worldly bypaths
From the narrow way;
But my Saviour sought me,
Brought me to His side;
Then again I followed
Christ, the Crucified.

I will follow Jesus,
Follow all the day;
Walking in His footsteps
Closely all the way.



But I would not wander,
Gracious Lord from Thee;
I would follow wholly,
With true loyalty:
Every sin forsaking
From my inmost soul;
Every thought surrendered
To Thy grand control.

I will follow Jesus,
Follow all the day;
Walking in His footsteps
Closely all the way.



Teach me by Thy Spirit,
And Thy Holy Word,
How I best may suffer,
And obey Thee, Lord;
And however painful
To obey may be,
Love can make it gladsome,
Aye to follow Thee.

I will follow Jesus,
Follow all the day;
Walking in His footsteps
Closely all the way.
