        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 every 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,
        Sweetening 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.
