I Will Follow Thee (2011)

I will follow Thee, my Saviour,
It’s the safest path for me.
‘Cause they’re too much intersections,
Endless dead-ends and backstreets.
I will follow Thee my Saviour,
GPS cannot save me;
Don’t want to be lead in circles,
By Thy grace I’ll follow Thee.

I will follow Thee, my Saviour,
Fashion just isn’t the deal.
Ladies exposing all their assets,
Male pencil jeans… is this for real?
I will follow Thee, my Saviour,
Catwalk cannot work for me.
I’ll adorn my heart with meekness,
By Thy grace I’ll follow Thee.

I will follow Thee, my Saviour,
Following money? That’s a joke.
I don’t want no stocks or bonds bro,
Cause it all ends up in smoke.
I will follow Thee, my Saviour,
Unit Trust is not for me.
They can keep their ‘Growth and Income’,
By Thy grace I’ll follow Thee.

I will follow Thee, my Saviour,
Don’t want to be a star on earth.
For five minutes men well praise you,
And then leave you in the dirt.
I will follow Thee, my Saviour,
MTV is not for me.
…rather be a star in heaven,
By Thy grace I’ll follow Thee.

I will follow Thee, my Saviour,
Though the world’s going the other way.
Christians… most are only fronting,
Following You until payday.
I will follow Thee, my Saviour,
Total commitment – that’s for me!
And though all men should forsake Thee,
By Thy grace I’ll follow Thee.
