Subject: Lyr Add: FOLLOW ME (Jean Norman)
Cajun-French singer-songwriter, Jean Norman of Church Point, Louisiana, seems to have used this tune for a new item. (The English verses I have transcribed below are followed by verses in Cajun-French.) You can hear a live recording of it at VOICES ACROSS AMERICA.



Jean Norman

1. When I woke from my sleep my life was in despair.
As I knelt right there to pray, a Voice just filled the air.

"Follow Me, follow Me. Why don't you follow Me?
If you but follow Me, my child, I can set you free."

2. Now my life on earth is o'er, and my Lord has come for me.
Peace and joy now fills my soul, as I have followed Him.
