I Have Decided to Follow Jesus (Hymn)

I Have Decided to Follow Jesus
S. Sundar Singh

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

Though I may wonder, I still will follow;
Though I may wonder, I still will follow;
Though I may wonder, I still will follow;
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.

Though none go with me, still I will follow;
Though none go with me, still I will follow;
Though none go with me, still I will follow;
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.

This is one of my all-time favorite hymns.  “I have decided to follow Jesus; no turning back, no turning back.”  That should be our attitude every day of our lives.  Even though we may follow Him alone, we still follow Him.  We are “prone to wonder,” but still we follow.  If we keep the cross in front of us and the world behind us, we will have a much easier time following Him.  “Will you decide now to follow Jesus?”

    Thanks for the reminders … this was one of the hymns sung at my baptism many moons ago. I have certainly tried to follow my own map since then, but I can truly say no other path leads to peace and salvation. I have wandered and I will continue to wonder, but “still I will follow”. Jesus is the only way!

    Blessings
