Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

783. Jesus, Shepherd of the Sheep

1 Jesus, shepherd of the sheep,
Who Your Father's flock does keep,
Safe we wake and safe we sleep,
Guarded still by You.

2 In Your promise firm we stand;
None can take us from Your hand.
Speak! We hear! At Your command,
We will follow You.

3 By Your blood our souls were bought;
By Your life salvation wrought;
By Your light our feet are taught,
Lord, to follow You.

4 Father, draw us to Your Son;
We with joy will follow on
Till the work of grace is done,
There to live with You.

5 We, in robes of glory dressed,
Join th' assembly of the blest,
Gathered to eternal rest
In the fold with You.
