Representative Text

1 As a shepherd He will lead them,
To green pastures they shall go;
All His blessings, as they need them,
On the lambs He will bestow.
In His bosom, when they languish,
Precious children He will take,
Where no blight, nor sin nor anguish
Any sorrow can awake.

Refrain:
As a shepherd He will lead them,
To green pastures they shall go;
And His blessings, as they need them,
On the lambs He will bestow.

2 Near the well of cooling water,
In the sultry noon of day,
Ev’ry little son and daughter
With the gentle One shall stay.
Shepherd strong, He will defend them,
Tho’ the wolf be fierce and bold;
Shepherd kind, He will attend them,
Bring them safely to the fold. [Refrain]

3 If upon the craggy mountain
Any lambs should flee away,
Jesus, from the cooling fountain,
Will o’ertake them where they stray,
Will restore each one, forgiven,
From the wild and stony waste,
And within the fold of heaven
Bring the saved ones home at last. [Refrain]
