I Follow The Footsteps Of Jesus My Lord


I follow the footsteps of Jesus, my Lord,
His Spirit doth lead me along;
I walk in the pathway made plain by his word,
And he fills all my soul with this song.

Refrain:
Glory to God, my spirit is free,
Glory to God, he purifies me;
I’m walking the thorn-path, but joyful I’ll be
While following Jesus, my Lord.

A leper he found me, polluted by sin,
From which he alone can set free;
He spake, in his mercy, “I will, be thou clean,”
And he instantly purified me. [Refrain]

A captive i woe to my prison of night,
The Master hath open’d the door;
Shout aloud of deliv’rance, ye angels of light,
Praise his name, O my soul, evermore. [Refrain]

Proclaim it, ’tis done, full salvation is wrought
For sinners from sorrow and woe;
Sing aloud of his grace who my pardon has bought,
For his blood washes whiter than snow. [Refrain]
