Follow Me by Ira Stanphill

1 I traveled down 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 Calv'ry 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."

2. "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.

3. Oh, Jesus if I die upon A foreign field some day,
'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.

I think that this hymn is in a (green) hymnal called melodies of praise. If this is right than the Song Deeper Deeper is one page 19. Bear in mind I was all of 12 remembering this several decades ago. LOL!!

The sheet music for this is available from Music Notes. There are several songs with the same title "follow me" but you can see additional info for each. I found it to be the third one down on the list. Also transposable after purchase.

I thank the one who wrote this song. It is because of this song that my life was radically changed for the better. There was a time back in 1986 when I was stressed and almost to the point of depression, I was about to give up. Then one night I attended a crusade where a gentle man sang this song. I don't remember what the preacher preached that night, but this is 30 years, yes, 30 years later, and this song from hearing it at that time is still an inspiration to me.
