Hinder Me Not 355
Tune: Thomas Jefferson Allen, 1902
Lyrics: John Ryland, 1775
Meter: Common Meter (8,6,8,6)
In all my Lord’s appointed ways
My journey I’ll pursue,
“Hinder me not,” ye much-loved saints,
For I must go with you.
Through floods and flames, if Jesus lead,
I’ll follow where He goes;
“Hinder me not,” shall be my cry,
Though earth and hell oppose.
Through duties and through trials, too,
I’ll go at His command,
“Hinder me not,” for I am bound
To my Immanuel’s land.
And when my Saviour calls me home,
Still this my cry shall be,
“Hinder me not;” come, welcome death,
I’ll gladly go with you.
Thomas Jefferson Allen wrote this music on October 16, 1902.
