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.
