Pastor animarum

Come! wandering sheep, O come!

Published in 25 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Come, wand'ring sheep, oh! come,
I'll bind thee to my breast,
I'll bear thee to thy home
And lay thee down to rest.

2 I saw thee stray forlorn,
And heard thee faintly cry,
And on the tree of scorn
For thee I deigned to die.

3 I shield thee from alarms,
And wilt thou not be blest?
I bear thee in my arms,
Thou bear me in thy breast.
