We Shall Follow (a poem of inspiration)

At Easter we remember our Lord Jesus and his sacrifice...
At Easter we remember our Lord Jesus and his sacrifice...
On the cross  he gave up his life so that we would be free of our sins...forgiven, and to follow him...
On the cross he gave up his life so that we would be free of our sins...forgiven, and to follow him...
The thunder rumbled, lightning clashed,  and winds did blow...
The thunder rumbled, lightning clashed, and winds did blow...
At his passing...he was buried in a tomb..
At his passing...he was buried in a tomb..
He arose again on the third day,,,
He arose again on the third day,,,



"Follow me", saith the Lord, our dearest Jesus was heard to say,

"I am the beginning and the end, and I am the only way."

He is the Alpha and Omega, and gave his precious life for us all,

Those who may lead a wrongful life, saved by answering his call.


He walked on the sea at Galilee, saved sinners and cured the meek,

Those who were lost, as ones are today, may find him if they seek.

Our God's own son, sacrificed that day, gave life up, us to be saved,

The golden pathway to Heaven above, by his own blood, he paved.


Angels sound trumpets at the gateway, they wait for you and me,

Where our God and heavenly hosts, receive all our spirits, so free.

Our lives may have been wrought with sin, it's there we are received,

Lord Jesus Christ is beckoning for us, for on him we have believed.


Follow him, the Lord and savior, the mighty gatherer of lost souls,

His life of purity has shone before us, his miracles, that he still extols.

Our celestial home awaits us each, the greatest teacher did so teach,

Here on our earthly home we wait, toward heaven, our arms to reach.





"Follow me", saith the Lord...
"Follow me", saith the Lord...
