Jesus you have called us

Added 11th January 2012


If you’re a fan of what we do, would you consider supporting us with a one-off or regular gift?
Resound Worship is a ministry of the Song and Hymn Writers Foundation, a charity dedicated to publishing quality worship songs as well as training, resourcing and influencing worship songwriters from the grass roots to published composers. We’d really value your support.

Jesus, you have called us:
Come, follow me,
take up your cross,
deny yourself
and live.

Jesus, I am willing
though I am weak;
I'll trust you
and I'll go where you lead.

I will follow,
I will follow,
I will follow
where you lead.

Jesus, you have shown us
how we should live:
in sacrifice,
and love.

Jesus, I am willing
though I am weak;
I'll follow you
with your Spirit in me.


This song seeks to echo the words of Jesus who called for a new sacrifical life from his disciples. I've tried to keep it as simple as possible, so that we can consider the call and respond with a repeated "I will follow", hoping that each time we sing those three words our commitment becomes a little bit more real in our hearts.

I've loved this song and used it regularly for years now. But last week using the choir score and C/Bb instrument parts was just brilliant- it's so helpful having these resources now I'm in a new context that has a choir! They really enjoyed it.

This is our Lenten theme song this year. In Lent we are looking at the stories from Luke 9-12, and what it means to follow Jesus. Thanks for a great song!
