I Will Follow

While on the surface Chris Tomlin's I Will Follow looks like a perfect song for a faith that believes in "following Jesus in life," upon closer inspection the lyrics leave much to be desired.  Shallow and individualistic, this song denies the challenges of picking up our crosses and following Jesus.  Full of cliche rhymes and bouncy rhythms, even the phrase "if this life I lose" seems to lack meaning or direction.  This song is catchy--no one can deny that!--but Chris, Jason, and Reuben could have put more theology into the lyrics.
