No disciple am I, Lord,
Doing battle for Thy word,
Girt with truth as with a sword;
Yet I follow Thee.

I am struggling in the night;
Nowhere is a point of light;
Doubt hath hid Thy cross from sight;
Yet I follow Thee.

Who can say what lies before:—
Gateways to a golden shore,
Or but death for evermore?
Yet I follow Thee.

Hope is dead in my dead heart;
Faith I had not from the start;
From all creeds I stand apart;
Yet I follow Thee.

Be Thou God, or man, or aught
Save a vision overwrought
By men's yearnings, I know naught;
Yet I follow Thee,—

Follow Thee through pain and gloom,
Though to lose Thee in the tomb.
Yet to love Thee is my doom,
And I follow Thee.
