When I was the song leader for the VBS kids we sang this and it was a favorite. I did copy/paste from another source but it's exactly like our copy except for an extra verse. Enjoy and God Bless.

I Have Decided to Follow Jesus

I have decided to follow Jesus;
I have decided to follow Jesus;
I have decided to follow Jesus;
No turning back, no turning back.

Tho' none go with me, still I will follow,
Tho' none go with me, still I will follow,
Tho' none go with me, still I will follow;
No turning back, no turning back.

My cross I'll carry, till I see Jesus;
My cross I'll carry, till I see Jesus,
My cross I'll carry, till I see Jesus;
No turning back, No turning back.

The world behind me, the Cross before me,
The world behind me, the Cross before me;
The world behind me, the Cross before me;
No turning back, no turning back.

Will you decide now to follow Jesus?
Will you decide now to follow Jesus?
Will you decide now to follow Jesus?
No turning back, no turning back.

thanks NAMETHATHYMN. You saved our church program this weekend. It was going to have to be changed because my brother couldn't remember the name of the song, but thanks to the efforts of a dedicated website, he didn't have to

The song is also in the 1975 Southern Baptist Hymnal, if you can find a copy. Let's pray that the Christians in the part of India who gave us this song are not only staying true to the Lord but that they'll still be making disciples for Jesus!
