Come Follow Me O Sweet Command

“Come, follow me,” oh, sweet command,
Which Jesus gave his little band;
And still we hear the tender plea,
“Come, take thy cross, and follow me.”

Come, follow me, Come follow me,
From sin and doubt and fear set free,
Come, learn of me, and do my will,
Oh, follow, follow, closer still.

Oh, fear the Saviour, heed his word,
Obey the precepts daily heard,
And love the Friend so true and tried,
For hark! he calls you to his side. [Chorus]

Then live to make the Saviour known,
And own him as your Lord alone;
Go, work for Jesus, hear his call,
And cleave to him, forsaking all. [Chorus]
