Name of song and more verses - Follow Me

One of the verses is:
If just a cup of water I place within your hands,
then just a cup of water is all that I demand.
Be faithful weary pilgrim the morning (?) I can see, ...take up thy cross and follow me.
Another verse:
His feet were also weary along that calvary road,
His cross became so heavy He fell beneath the load
...follow after me.
I think it is usually a solo.

Hi Guest,

Here's what I found. The hymn is "Follow Me", lyrics by Ira F. Stamphill:

I traveled on a lonely road and no one seemed to care.
The burden on my weary back had bowed me to despair;
I oft complained to Jesus how folks were treating me,
And then I heard Him say so tenderly,
"My feet were also weary, upon the Calvary road;
The cross became so heavy, I fell beneath the load,
Be faithful weary pilgrim the morning I can see,
Just lift your cross and follow close to me."

"I work so hard for Jesus" I often boast and say
"I've sacrificed a lot of things to walk the narrow way,
I gave up fame and fortune, I'm worth a lot to Thee"
And then I hear Him gently say to me,
"I left the throne of glory and counted it but loss,
My hands were nailed in anger upon a cruel cross,
But now we'll make the journey with your hand safe in mine,
So lift your cross and follow close to me.

Oh Jesus if I die upon a foreign field someday,
'Twould be no more than love demands, no less could I repay,
"No greater love hath mortal man than for a friend to die"
These are the words He gently spoke to me,
"If just a cup of water I place within your hand
Then just a cup of water is all that I demand.
But if by death to living they can Thy glory see,
I'll take my cross and follow close to Thee.

Hope this is the one! Here's a link to some sheet music:

Follow Me

God bless,
Steve

I know of a song that has that line in it, called,
If We Never Meet Again (this side of Heaven) It doesnt start off with that line, though, so its probably not it. If you think it might be, I'd be glad to get you the words on here. Will keep posted and check occasionally....good luck

How about...

God be with you till we meet again
By His counsels guide, uphold you
With His sheep securely fold you
God be with you till we meet again

Till we meet, till we meet
Till we meet at Jesus' feet
Till we meet, till we meet
God be with you till we meet again

Thanks Guest #2. Here are the complete lyrics to "God Be with You Till We Meet Again".

1.
God be with you till we meet again;
By His counsels guide, uphold you,
With His sheep securely fold you;
God be with you till we meet again.

Chorus
Till we meet, till we meet,
Till we meet at Jesus' feet;
Till we meet, till we meet,
God be with you till we meet again.

2.
God be with you till we meet again;
Neath His wings protecting hide you;
Daily manna still provide you;
God be with you till we meet again.

Chorus

3.
God be with you till we meet again;
With the oil of joy anoint you;
Sacred ministries appoint you;
God be with you till we meet again.

Chorus

4.
God be with you till we meet again;
When life's perils thick confound you;
Put His arms unfailing round you;
God be with you till we meet again.

Chorus

5.
God be with you till we meet again;
Of His promises remind you;
For life's upper garner bind you;
God be with you till we meet again.

Chorus

6.
God be with you till we meet again;
Sicknesses and sorrows taking,
Never leaving or forsaking;
God be with you till we meet again.

Chorus

7.
God be with you till we meet again;
Keep love's banner floating o'er you,
Strike death's threatening wave before you;
God be with you till we meet again.

Chorus

8.
God be with you till we meet again;
Ended when for you earth's story,
Israel's chariot sweep to glory;
God be with you till we meet again.

Chorus

Most of the time only four verses are sung.

Here's the hymn that Guest #1 mentioned:

1.
Soon we'll come to the end of life's journey
And perhaps we'll never meet anymore
Till we gather in heaven's bright city
Far away on that beautiful shore

Chorus
If we never meet again this side of heaven
As we struggle through this world and its strife
There's another meeting place somewhere in heaven
By the river of life
Where the charming roses bloom, forever
And where separation come no more
If we never meet again this side of heaven
I will meet you on that beautiful shore

2.
Oh so often we are parted with sorrow
And action often quietens our pain
But we never shall sorrow in heaven
God be with you till we meet again

God bless,
Steve
