795. Jesus Is My Shepherd

1 Jesus is my Shepherd, so kind and true,
Down where the living waters flow;
He calls for His own, He keepeth the “few,”
Where pastures of green ever grow.

Refrain:
Jesus is my Shepherd, He leadeth me,
Down where the living waters flow;
His smiles I enjoy, His face I do see,
His blood makes me whiter than snow.

2 Jesus is my Shepherd, I’m in His fold,
Down where the living waters flow;
He keeps me each day from danger and cold,
I’ll follow where’er He may go. [Refrain]

3 Jesus is my Shepherd, He is the door,
He watcheth over everyone;
He cares for the weak, He healeth the sore,
He bringeth the wanderer home. [Refrain]

4 Jesus is my Shepherd, His voice I hear,
And when He calleth I obey;
He leads me with joy, though danger be near,
For He is the life and the way. [Refrain]
