I love this hymn!

We are still visiting in Utah for our nieces wedding, and so we went to church with them today. I loved one of the hymns that we sung. As I reread the words I was thinking... this is something I need to print out and put on my mirror.
Better  go pack, so I thought I would share this with you tonight. It is something I really need to remember on a daily basis.
Good night dear friends!

  Lord, I Would Follow Thee

1. Savior, may I learn to love thee,
Walk the path that thou hast shown,
Pause to help and lift another,
Finding strength beyond my own.
Savior, may I learn to love thee—

Lord, I would follow thee.
2. Who am I to judge another
When I walk imperfectly?
In the quiet heart is hidden
Sorrow that the eye can’t see.
Who am I to judge another?

3. I would be my brother’s keeper;
I would learn the healer’s art.
To the wounded and the weary
I would show a gentle heart.
I would be my brother’s keeper—

4. Savior, may I love my brother
As I know thou lovest me,
Find in thee my strength, my beacon,
For thy servant I would be.
Savior, may I love my brother—
