1 Are you staying, safely staying,
In the tender Shepherd's peaceful fold?
No, I'm straying, sadly straying,
On the lonely mountains, dark and cold.

Refrain:
On your ear his loving tones are falling,
For he seeks you, wheresoe'er you roam,
Hear him, calling, sweetly calling,
As he bids his wandering sheep come home.

2 Are you hearing, gladly hearing,
How he bid his folded flock rejoice?
No, I'm fearing, sadly fearing,
I have followed far the stranger's voice. [Refrain]

3 Are you roaming, longer roaming,
In the cold, dark night of doubt and sin?
No, I'm coming, quickly coming!
Open door! make haste to let me in! [Refrain]
