I Have Decided To Follow Jesus

I Have Decided to Follow Jesus - Lydia Walker | Lyric Video | Christian Music Playlist | Hymns

Songwriter/Composer/Translator Traditional
Malayalam version: Yesuvin Pinpe Pokanurachu (യേശുവിൻ പിൻപേ പോകാനുറച്ചു)

According to P. Job, the lyrics are based on the last words of Nokseng, a Garo man, a tribe from Meghalaya which then was in Assam, who converted to Christianity in the middle of the 19th century through the efforts of an American Baptist missionary. He is said to have recited verses from the twelfth chapter of the Gospel of John as he and his family were killed. The formation of the martyr’s words into a hymn has been attributed to the Indian missionary Sadhu Sundar Singh. [Wikipedia]

         G
I have decided to follow Jesus
         C               G
I have decided to follow Jesus
                         Em
I have decided to follow Jesus
           G    D            G
No turning back   no turning back
 
Tho' none go with me, I still will follow
Tho' none go with me I still will follow
Tho' none go with me, I still will follow
No turning back, no turning back

My cross I'll carry, till I see Jesus
My cross I'll carry till I see Jesus
My cross I'll carry till I see Jesus
No turning back, No turning back

The world behind me, the cross before me
The world behind me, the cross before me
The world behind me, the cross before me
No turning back, no turning back
