The One That Follows

I am the one that follows,
that ever learns
and corrects,
shining as I go

He was the one who led,
set the course
and loved
and above all gave

I will follow Him always,
until the end
and pray
for love and peace

I will often fall
or perhaps misstep,
but rise,
always to try again

It is in the following
that I become,
can lead
and live in service

Where He has gone,
a trail left,
a guide
for all who follow

Where He has died,
a marker left,
shared eternal
to show all the way

Where He has risen,
an eternal sign
loves’ light
meant to be shared

I am the one that follows
perhaps to lead,
a reminder
that He’s not gone

He is here always,
with us all,
giving grace
and guiding us home

He is the one who leads,
reminding us daily,
offering love
and forgiveness to all

He is the guiding light,
showing the path,
I am
the one that follows
