117. The Shepherd’s Care

1 We are the lambs, the Shepherd’s lambs,
The Shepherd’s voice we hear,
And when we follow in His steps,
No danger shall we fear.

Oh Jesus is the Shepherd,
The little lambs are we,
And o’er us ev’ry day and hour
he watches tenderly.

2 He leads us o’er the mountain high
And thro’ the valleys low,
We gladly follow where He leads,
No other voice we know. [Refrain]

3 He loves to hear the little lambs
Sing of His tender care,
He loves to have our little hearts
Lift up to Him in prayer. [Refrain]

4 “Let little ones come unto me,”
This Shepherd once did say,
And still He bids us come to Him
This very, very day. [Refrain]
