  1. Sweetly, Lord, have we heard Thee calling,
     Come, follow Me!
     And we see where Thy footprints falling
     Lead us to Thee.

     Footprints of Jesus,
     That make the pathway glow;
     We will follow the steps of Jesus
     Where'er they go.

  2. Though they lead o'er the cold, dark mountains,
     Seeking His sheep;
     Or along by Siloam's fountains,
     Helping the weak.


  3. If they lead through the temple holy,
     Preaching the Word;
     Or in homes of the poor and lowly,
     Serving the Lord.


  4. Then at last, when on high he sees us
     Our journey done,
     We will rest where the steps of Jesus 
     end at his throne.
