The Story Behind The Hymn 'I Have Decided To Follow Jesus'



The lyrics are based on the last words of Nokseng, a Garo man, a tribe from Meghalaya in Northern India

I have decided to follow Jesus;
I have decided to follow Jesus;
I have decided to follow Jesus;
No turning back, no turning back.

Though none go with me, still I will follow;
Though none go with me, still I will follow;
Though none go with me, still I will follow;
No turning back, no turning back.

The Cross before me, the world behind me, 
The Cross before me, the world behind me, 
The world behind me, the cross before me;
No turning back, no turning back.
