Come Follow Me

  1. “Come, follow me,” the Savior said.
    Then let us in his footsteps tread,
    For thus alone can we be one
    With God’s own loved, begotten Son.
  2. “Come, follow me,” a simple phrase,
    Yet truth’s sublime, effulgent rays
    Are in these simple words combined
    To urge, inspire the human mind.
  3. Is it enough alone to know
    That we must follow him below,
    While trav’ling thru this vale of tears?
    No, this extends to holier spheres.
  4. Not only shall we emulate
    His course while in this earthly state,
    But when we’re freed from present cares,
    If with our Lord we would be heirs.
  5. We must the onward path pursue
    As wider fields expand to view,
    And follow him unceasingly,
    Whate’er our lot or sphere may be.
  6. For thrones, dominions, kingdoms, pow’rs,
    And glory great and bliss are ours,
    If we, throughout eternity,
    Obey his words, “Come, follow me.”
