Hymn/Song Information

How shall we follow him we serve How




How shall we follow him we serve?
How shall we copy him we love?
Nor from those blessed footsteps swerve,
Which lead us to his seat above?


Privations, sorrows, bitter scorn,
The life of toil, the mean abode,
The faithless kiss, the crown of thorn,
Are these the consecrated road?


‘Twas this he suffered, though a Son,
Foreknowing, choosing, feeling all;
Until the perfect work was done,
And he had drunk the cup of gall.


Lord, should our paths through suffering lie,
Forbid that we should e’er repine;
Still let us turn to Calvary,
Nor heed our griefs, remembering thine.


Oh, let us think how thou didst leave
Untasted many a pure delight,
To fast, to strive, to faint, to grieve,
To toil by day, and watch by night.


Thou cam’st to suffer all for us,
Not with Earth’s joys thyself to please;
And since thou lov’st thy people thus,
Shall we not love thee more than these?


Yes, we would count them all but loss,
Faithful to thee until we die;
Flesh shrinks and trembles at the cross,
But thou cast give the victory
