To the Desert Follow Me


 

This is a companion song to Sarah Hart’s “Take These Ashes.” Both songs share the same verses, but the refrain for “To the Desert Follow Me” makes it appropriate for use throughout the Lenten season for Preparation of the Gifts, Communion, reconciliation and other prayer services.

To the desert follow me,
for I am God, who is your hope.
To the desert follow me.

I will renew your weary heart
and keep you always in my sight;
give you a spirit that is new;
restore the joy of your salvation.

 

Watch Sarah discuss her song “Take These Ashes” in this episode of The Commons — perfect for the celebration of Ash Wednesday.
