663. Jesus Makes My Heart Rejoice

1 Jesus makes my heart rejoice,
I’m his sheep and know his voice;
he’s a shepherd kind and gracious,
and his pastures are delicious,
constant love to me he shows,
yea, my very name he knows!

2 Should not I for gladness leap,
led by Jesus as his sheep?
For when these blessed days are over,
to the arms of my dear Savior
I shall be conveyed to rest.
Amen, yea, my lot is blessed.
