Come, ye followers of the Lord,
In Jesu's service join,

Luke xviii. 1.

Come, ye followers of the Lord,
In Jesu's service join,
Jesus gives the sacred word,
The ordinance divine;
Let us his command obey,
And ask and have whate'er we want;
Pray we, every moment pray,
And never, never faint.

Place no longer let us give
To the old Tempter's will;
Never more our duty leave,
While Satan cries, "Be still;"
Stand we in the ancient way,
And here with God ourselves acquaint;
Pray we, every moment pray,
And never, never faint.

Be it weariness and pain
To slothful flesh and blood,
Yet we will the cross sustain,
And bless the welcome load;
All our griefs to God display,
And humbly pour out our complaint;
Pray we, every moment pray,
And never, never faint.

Let us patiently endure,
And still our wants declare;
All the promises are sure
To persevering prayer;
Till we see the perfect day,
And each wakes up a sinless saint,
Pray we, every moment pray,
And never, never faint.

Pray we on when all renewed,
And perfected in love,
Till we see the Saviour-God
Descending from above;
All his heavenly charms survey,
Beyond what angel minds can paint;
Pray we, every moment pray,
And never, never faint.
