Lyrics

Who will follow Je­sus,
Standing for the right,
Holding up His banner
In the thickest fight?
Listening for His orders,
Ready to obey,
Who will follow Je­sus,
Serving Him today?

Refrain

Who will follow Je­sus?
Who will make reply,
I am on the Lord’s side;
Master, here am I
?
Who will follow Je­sus?
Who will make reply,
I am on the Lord’s side;
Master, here am I
?

Who will follow Je­sus,
In life’s busy ways,
Working for the Mas­ter,
Giving Him the praise;
Earnest in His vineyard,
Honoring His laws,
Faithful to His counsel,
Watchful for His cause?

Refrain

Who will follow Je­sus
When the tempter charms?
Fleeing then, for safety,
To the Sav­ior’s arms;
Trusting in His mercy,
Trusting in His power,
Seeking fresh renewals
Of His grace each hour?

Refrain

Who will follow Je­sus,
In His work of love,
Leading others to Him,
Lifting prayers above?
Courage, faithful servant!
In His Word we see,
On our side for­ev­er
Will this Sav­ior be.
