136. Jesus, my Shepherd, let me share

1 Jesus, my Shepherd, let me share
Thy guiding hand, Thy tender care;
And let me ever find in Thee,
A refuge and a rest for me.

2 Oh, lead me ever by Thy side,
Where fields are green, and waters glide;
And be Thou still, where’er I be,
A refuge and a rest for me.

3 While I this barren desert tread,
Feed Thou my soul on heavenly bread;
‘Mid foes and fears Thee may I see,
A refuge and a rest for me.

4 Anoint me with Thy gladdening grace,
To cheer me in the heavenly race;
Cause all my gloomy doubts to flee,
And make my spirit rest in Thee.

5 When death shall end this mortal strife,
Bring me through death to endless life;
Then, face to face, beholding Thee,
My refuge and my rest shall be.
