Following Christ. Matt. 16. 24; 3. 13; Mark 1. 9
J. Stevens S.M.
With pleasure we behold
Immanuel’s offspring come;
As sheep are gathered to the fold,
And left no more to roam.
The way the Shepherd trod
They freely choose to go;
Moved by the powerful love of God,
They leave this world below.
This watery path they own;
Their Saviour’s cross they view;
And resting on his blood alone,
By faith they journey through.
Among the flock they rest,
In pastures fresh and green;
With peace and safety ever blest,
And pleasures all serene.
