C.M.S. 182, H.C. 377 
“If any man serve me let him follow me, 
and where I am there shall also my 
servant be" - John 12:26

1.  AT thou wary art thou lanquid 

     A! thou sore distress’d? 

     "Come to me" saith

     The Holy one and “be at rest"

2.  Hath He marks to lead me to Him

     If he be my guide?

     In His feet and hands are 

     wound prints 

     And His side.

3.  Is there diadem, as monarch, 

     That His brow adorns? 

     “Yea, a crown in very surety 

     But of Thorns.

4.  If I find Him, If I follow 

     What His guerdon here?

     Many a sorrow many a labour 

     Many a tear.

5.  If I still hold closely to Him 

     What have he at last?

     Sorrow vanquish'd labour ended 

     Jordan pass.

6.  If I ask Him to receive me 

     Will He say me nay?

     Not till earth, and till heaven 

     Pass away.

7.  Finding following keeping struggling 
     Is He sure to bless?

     Saints, Apostles Prophets

     Martyrs answer, Yes.  Amen
