Representative Text

1 Blessed Shepherd of my soul,
Let me in Thy presence be;
If in sorrow I should wander,
Blessed Shepherd be with me.

Blessed Shepherd ever lead me,
By my comfort day by day;
Till this weary life is ended,
And these tears are wiped away.

2 Mighty Shepherd of my life,
In Thy arms I helpless fall;
Leave me not alone to perish,
Save me when on Thee I call. [Chorus]

3 Blessed Shepherd of my soul,
Let me on Thy bosom rest;
Leaning there and sweetly trusting,
I shall be forever blest. [Chorus]

4 Shepherd, Bishop of the sheep,
Dost Thou love the one astray?
On the mountain wild and dreary,
Bring him to Thy fold today. [Chorus]
