Come Follow Me Flip Chart & Lyrics

With the amazing new curriculum, it’s nearly impossible not to choose Come, Follow Me as one of the Primary Songs this year for our Primary New Testament Come Follow Me Songs!

As a hymn, it’s not one we often use in Primary, but it’s a great song with a simple but important message.

Come Follow Me Flip Chart

I plan to only teach the first verse of Come Follow Me Hymn (archives), but this flip chart includes the first 3 verses to help you select what works best for your Primary. Each verse has a different highlight color to point out following the Savior.

I’m all about making the flip charts as space efficient as possible. For me, that means I don’t want to flip 10 pages just for a single verse. This flip chart has one page per verse, so it’s super easy to flip through the song, while directing.

See how I use flip charts for some handy tips and tricks to make your flip chart life easier!!

You can see more of my flip charts over here on the Primary Flip Chart list landing page. I’ll be working on adding the additional songs for this year over the next week or so.

Come Follow Me Hymn Lyrics

This song is published in the green LDS Hymn book Page #116
You can find the Come Follow Me sheet music here.

Verse 1:
“Come, follow me,” the Savior said.
Then let us in his footsteps tread,
For thus alone can we be one
With God’s own loved, begotten Son.

Verse 2:
“Come, follow me,” a simple phrase,
Yet truth’s sublime, effulgent rays
Are in these simple words combined,
To urge, inspire the human mind.

Verse 3:
Is it enough alone to know
That we must follow him below,
While trav’ling thru this vale of tears?
No, this extends to holier spheres.

Verse 4:
Not only shall we emulate
His course while in this earthly state,
But when we’re freed from present cares,
If with our Lord we would be heirs.

“Come, Follow Me” words by John Nicholson (1839-1909) and music by Samuel McBurney (1847-1909). Used under public domain.
