Follow Me

Hello! I am Jesus
Son of God, Son of Man
I came to earth
To tell of God’s plan

To show you I love you
To call you to be
A child in My kingdom
Will you come, follow Me?

I cannot follow
I have things to do
My days are filled up
I have no time for You.

Would you follow Me
If I promise to care?
You have no need to worry
I have counted each hair

I will meet every need
Give you food, give you clothes
You are precious to Me
From your head to your toes!

I cannot follow
I have things to do
My days are filled up
I have no time for You

I can care for myself
Have a family and home
I have no need for You
Please leave me alone!

Would you follow Me
If you saw My power
To heal those who are sick,
And make demons cower?

I stopped a great storm,
I walked on the sea
I fed the 5,000
Will you come, follow Me?

I cannot follow
I have things to do
My days are filled up
I have no time for You

I can care for myself
Have a family and home
I have no need for You
Please leave me alone!

And as for Your power
I’ll choose to ignore
Maybe it’s magic
Like a trick, from the store

And how could You feed
5,000? I read
That a boy only brought You
Two fish and some bread!

I can do anything!
I’m the Light of the world
Come out of the dark
Every boy, every girl

Come, follow Me
I will teach you the Way
Be a friend of the Father
Do not be afraid!

I cannot follow
I have things to do
My days are filled up
I have no time for You

I can care for myself
Have a family and home
I have no need for You
Please leave me alone!

And as for Your power
I’ll choose to ignore
Maybe it’s magic
Like a trick, from the store

And, how could You feed
5,000? I read
That a boy only brought You
Two fish and some bread!

But… if you can do anything
What is the cost?
I’m not sure what to do
I’m afraid I am lost

Like a sheep with no shepherd
I don’t know where to go
Your way may be better
Help me to know

Would you follow Me
If I died in your place
Hung on a cross
Like a robber, disgraced
For all who do wrong
Then placed in a grave
To forgive all your sins
So that you may be saved?

I don’t understand
Why You need to die
I’m a very good person
(That may be a lie.)

I heard in three days
You will live again
And go back to Heaven
Will I see You again?

If you believe
That I am God’s Son
Sent from Heaven
The only One
With power to save
A new life, I will give
Come, follow Me
Obey Me and live!

And when your time
On this earth is done
You’ll find a new life
Has just begun
With Me in Heaven
And the Father you’ll see
Together forever
If you come, follow Me.

About Arrow

Hi and welcome! My pen name is Arrow. The word “arrow” intrigues me because it has two meanings that describe my passions. One, it is an instrument used offensively to reach a target, and two, it shows the way. As a believer and follower of Jesus Christ, my goals are to live for Him, lead others to Him, and glorify the Heavenly Father. I pray that the stories, poems/song lyrics, and devotional thoughts I share on this website may always be inspired by the Holy Spirit and aligned with the truths found in God’s Word. My hope is that the words may penetrate your heart and point the way to a closer relationship with the Savior. I look forward to sharing my journey with you. Experiencing what God has in store is bound to be exciting! May you be blessed! ~ Arrow
