I Want to Follow Jesus





I Want to Follow Jesus


I want to see the Christ child

Who was born among the sheep

Follow in His footsteps

His legacy, to keep.


I want to be His chosen one

How humbled, I would be

To fish with James and Simon

On the sea of Galilee.


I want to walk on water

Feel His soothing peace

When the waves are all about me

And He calls for them to cease.


I want to stand amongst the crowds

Know His mightly grace

See Him feed the multitudes

Gaze upon His face.


I want to see Him heal the sick

Cause the blind to see

Touch the crippled and the deaf

Cure the leprosy.


I want to sit with Jesus

Beside Him, I would dine

Next to John and Philip

At a very crucial time.


I want to pray with Jesus

Take away the fear

In the garden of Gethsemane

I'll wipe away His tear.


I want to be with Jesus

As He hangs there up above

On the rugged cross at Calvary

I'll shelter Him with love.


I want to follow Jesus

When the stone is rolled away

See the eyes of His disciples

As He slowly walks their way.


I want to go with Jesus

His radiant face to see

In a flame of blazing glory

When He returns for me.
