Will you come and follow me?
Tune: Kelvingrove

 

Will you come and follow me
 if I but call your name?
Will you go where you donít know
and never be the same?

Will you let my love be shown,

will you let my name be known,

will you let my life be grown

in you and you in me?

 

Will you leave your self behind
if I but call your name?
Will you care for cruel and kind
and never be the same?

Will you risk the hostile stare

should your life attract or scare,

will you let me answer prayer

in you and you in me?

 

Will you let the blinded see
if I but call your name?
Will you set the prisoners free
and never be the same?
Will you kiss the leper clean
and do such as this unseen,
and admit to what I mean
in you and you in me?

 

Will you love the Ďyouí you hide
if I but call your name?
Will you quell the fear inside
and never be the same?

Will you use the faith youíve found

to reshape the world around

through my sight and touch and sound

in you and you in me?

 

Lord, your summons echoes true
when you but call my name.
Let me turn and follow you
and never be the same.
In your company Iíll go
where your love and footsteps show.
Thus Iíll move and live and grow
in you and you in me.
