Savior, I Follow On

Representative Text

1 Savior, I follow on,
Guided by thee,
Seeing not yet the hand
That leadeth me.
Hushed be my heart and still;
Fear I no further ill.
Only to meet thy will
My will shall be.

2 Riven the rock for me,
Thirst to relieve,
Manna from heaven falls
Fresh ev'ry eve.
Never a want severe
Causeth my eye a tear,
But thou dost whisper near,
"Only believe."

3 Often to Marah's brink
Have I been brought;
Shrinking the cup to drink,
Help I have sought,
And with the prayer's ascent
Jesus the branch hath rent,
Quickly relief hath sent,
Sweet'ning the draught.

4 Savior, I long to walk
Closer with thee;
Led by thy guiding hand,
Ever to be
Constantly near thy side,
Quickened and purified,
Living for him who died
Freely for me.
