B. M. Ramsey

JESUS is calling in accents of tenderness,

Jesus is calling, my brother, to thee,

Just as of old, by the waters of Galilee,

Fell from His lips the command, “Follow Me.”


Take to the Saviour thy sorrow and selfishness,

Break from the fetters of sin, and be free;

Jesus has promised thee strength as thou needest it,

If thou obey the command, “Follow Me.”


O Thou who knowest our wants and infirmities,

Thou who hast promised our helper to be,

Grant us Thy grace, that with heart-searching earnestness

We may respond to the call, “Follow Me.”
