As a church pianist, I have learned there is a tendency to not really read or hear the words to a song during church services. It is so easy to get caught up in making sure the music sounds okay that the words are completely forgotten. Lately I’ve been trying to read the words as the congregation sings instead of just concentrating on music – it’s nice to be able to worship along with the rest of the congregation more.

This morning the words to Follow On have been in my mind. It is so true – we can follow Jesus regardless of where we are.

Follow On

Words: Will­iam O. Cush­ing
Music: Ro­bert Low­ry

Down in the valley with my Savior I would go,
Where the flowers are blooming and the sweet waters flow;
Everywhere He leads me I would follow, follow on,
Walking in His footsteps till the crown be won.

Follow! follow! I would follow Jesus!
Anywhere, everywhere, I would follow on!
Follow! follow! I would follow Jesus!
Everywhere He leads me I would follow on!

Down in the valley with my Savior I would go,
Where the storms are sweeping and the dark waters flow;
With His hand to lead me I will never, never fear,
Danger cannot fright me if my Lord is near.

Follow! follow! I would follow Jesus!
Anywhere, everywhere, I would follow on!
Follow! follow! I would follow Jesus!
Everywhere He leads me I would follow on!

Down in the valley, or upon the mountain steep,
Close beside my Savior would my soul ever keep;
He will lead me safely in the path that He has trod,
Up to where they gather on the hills of God.

Follow! follow! I would follow Jesus!
Anywhere, everywhere, I would follow on!
Follow! follow! I would follow Jesus!
Everywhere He leads me I would follow on!

Spread the love

  1. I love that song and now have the chorus going through my head. Mind you, I’m not complaining, I always love it when a wonderful hymn gets stuck.
