Representative Text

1 Children are the lambs of Jesus,
God’s won Word doth tell us so;
Lovingly we hear Him calling,
“Follow in My steps below.”

We will follow, gladly follow,
While we hear Him whisper, “Come;”
Thro’ this world of sin and darkness,
He will lead us safely home.

2 In the narrow way with Jesus,
We are kept from ev’ry snare;
Danger may be all around us,
We are safe in His dear care. [Refrain]

3 He will ever go before us,
Keeping us from day to day,
For He is our tender Shepherd,
And will lead us all the way. [Refrain]
