A simple but nice medley of two well-known songs. Come Follow me is first, then I'm Trying to Be Like Jesus, which has a repeat if two verses will be sung. Then a tag ending with a short Come Follow Me motif as the children hold the last note finishes it off.
Lyrics
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.

I'm trying to be like Jesus,
I'm following in his way.
I'm trying to love as He did
In all that I do and say.
At times I am tempted to make a wrong choice
But I try to listen as the still, small voice whispers,
Love one another as Jesus loves you.
Try to show kindness in all that you do.
Be gentle and loving in deed and in thought,
For these are thing things Jesus taught.

I'm trying to love my neighbor,
I'm learning to serve my friends.
I watch for the day with gladness
When Jesus will come again,
I try to remember the lessons he taught,
Then the Holy Spirit enters into my thoughts, saying,
Love one another as Jesus loves you.
Try to show kindness in all that you do.
Be gentle and loving in deed and in thought,
For these are the things Jesus taught.
For these are the things Jesus taught.
