Just a Follower

I'm not a leader, Lord,
Decision are too tough,
I may have some ideas,
But for me it is enough
Just to follow.

I do not want too much
It's more than I can bear
And all I wish to be
Is one who follows.

I truly wish to serve
You as my Lord and King,
Give me Your Leadership;
I will do anything
As I follow.

So give me grace, dear Lord,
When a need I see,
Not to shirk the task,
But obedient to be
And still follow.

I would not run ahead;
I am content to wait.
By You I would be led,
Until through Heaven's Gate
I shall follow.
