Subject: GOSPEL SONG
From: NEWFOUNDLANDER
Date: 13 Feb 98 - 06:53 AM

Looking for a song that I heard by Cowboy Copas many years ago. It goes something like this.
Take up thy cross and follow me. Whereever he leads I'll go. I heard the voice of Jesus say, in tones so soft and low---------?

Not much to go on there. My guess would be From The Manger To The Cross. Right?

No, I think that's "The knife without a handle whose blade has rusted away." Oh wait, sorry, that's a painting, not a song. My mistake.

What's the matter with y'all? Can't you read what the man typed? Newfoundlander, the "new line" code is <br>. If you just type < everything after that symbol will be invisible to all but those of us who can read invisible writing.
But no, I'm not familiar with the song.

Is it either one of these, Newfoundlander? They're both from "The Broadman Hymnal," 1940 edition. If you'd like me to post the tunes, let me know. -Joe Offer-

I HEARD THE VOICE OF JESUS SAY
words: Horatius Bonar, 1846
tune: Old English (?) Air (Star of County Down)


I heard the voice of Jesus say,
Come unto Me and rest;
Lay down, thou weary one, lay down,
Thy head upon My breast.
I came to Jesus as I was,
Weary and worn and sad;
I found in Him a resting-place,
And He has made me glad.

2. I heard the voice of Jesus say,
Behold, I freely give
The living water; thirsty one,
Stoop down and drink and live.
I came to Jesus, and I drank
Of that life-giving stream.
My thirst was quenched, my soul revived,
And now I live in Him.

3. I heard the voice of Jesus say,
I am this dark world's Light.
Look unto Me; thy morn shall rise
And all thy day be bright.
I looked to Jesus, and I found
In Him my Star, my Sun;
And in that Light of Life I'll walk
Till traveling days are done.


WHEREVER HE LEADS I'LL GO
words and music, B.B. McKinney

"Take up thy cross and follow Me," I heard my Master say;
"I gave My life to ransom thee, Surrender your all today."

[chorus]
Wherever He leads I'll go
Wherever He leads I'll go
I'll follow my Christ who loves me so,
Wherever He leads I'll go
He drew me closer to His side, I sought His will to know,
And in that will I now abide, Wherever He leads I'll go.
[chorus]

It may be through the shadows dim, Or o'er the stormy sea,
I take my cross and follow Him, Wherever He leadeth me.
[chorus]

My heart, my life, my all I bring To Christ who loves me so;
He is my Master, Lord, and King, Wherever He leads I'll go
[chorus]

WHEREVER HE LEADS I'LL GO, II
words and music, B.B. McKinney
As recorded by "Cowboy" Copas

CHO:
Wherever He leads, I'll go;
Wherever He leads, I'll go.
I'll follow my Lord who loved me so,
Wherever He leads, I'll go.

1. I heard the voice of Jesus say, in tones so sweet and low,
"Take up thy cross and follow Me." Wherever He leads, I'll go.

CHORUS

2. He drew me closer to His side; I sought His will to know.
And in that Will I now abide; wherever He leads I'll go.
