"Music to inspire and nourish the soul."

Follow Me

This song talks about Jesus' direction to his disciples when He instructed them to leave their fishing nets and follow Him. His injunction to us is the same today as it was to His disciples nearly 2000 years ago. We, too, need to leave worldly cares behind and follow Him, for that is what is most important.

Lyrics
Follow Me

Christ found Peter and Andrew, too
They were casting nets out into the sea.
He spoke words that would change their lives
When He offered a brief, heartfelt plea.
Christ found John, James, and Zebedee.
They were busy mending their fishing nets.
They saw Him walking close to the shore,
Then He spoke burning words they would never forget.

He said, "Follow Me. Follow me,
And I will make you fishers of men.
Follow Me. Follow Me,
And I will be your true Friend.
I'll show the way that you must live to truly be set free.
Put down your nets and come and follow Me."

After Jesus was crucified,
His disciples wondered what they should do.
All their lives had been changed by Christ.
Now He's gone. They must start out anew.
Peter, Thomas, and James and John
Went a-fishing once more out on the sea.
Christ, resurrected, called from the shore.
He repeated the words He had said previously.

He said, "Follow Me. Follow me,
And I will make you fishers of men.
Follow Me. Follow Me,
And I will be your true Friend.
I'll show the way that you must live to truly be set free.
Put down your nets and come and follow Me."

Many years have since come and gone,
Yet Christ's invitation remains the same:
Turn away from all worldly cares,
Seeking always to walk in His way.
Words He spoke then to James and John
Are the same He speaks now to you and me:
Put down your nets and follow the One
Who turns heartache to joy when you act on His plea.

He says, "Follow Me. Follow me,
And I will make you fishers of men.
Follow Me. Follow Me,
And I will be your true Friend.
I'll show the way that you must live to truly be set free.
So put down your nets,      
All worldliness
Put down your nets 
And come and follow Me."
