Kind Is Our Shepherd

Representative Text

1 Children of God here below,
Joyfully onward we go,
Jesus will guide us, we know;
Kind is our Shepherd, and true.

Kind is our Shepherd, and true,
Gladly His voice we obey;
Naught do we fear
While He is near,
He will be with us for aye.
Kind is our Shepherd, and true,
Gladly His voice we obey
Glory ad praise to His name!
Kind is our Shepherd, and true.

2 Jesus, so lowly and meek,
Came all the lost ones to seek,
Gave His own life for His sheep;
Kind is our Shepherd, and true. [Chorus]

3 He knows the way that we take,
Hears ev'ry prayer that we make,
He'll never leave nor forsake;
Kind is our Shepherd, and true. [Chorus]

4 His blest commands we'll obey,
Serve Him with gladness each day,
Jesus will teach us the way;
Kind is our Shepherd, and true. [Chorus]
