1 Dear Saviour, if these lambs should stray
From Thy secure enclosure's bound,
And, lured by worldly joys away,
Among the thoughtless crowd be found,
2 Remember still that they are Thine,
That Thy dear sacred Name they bear;
Think that the seal of love divine,
The sign of covenant grace, they wear.
3 In all their erring, sinful years,
O let them ne'er forgotten be;
Remember all the prayers and tears
Which made them consecrate to Thee.
4 And when these lips no more can pray,
These eyes can weep for them no more,
Turn Thou their feet from folly's way;
the wanderers to Thy fold restore.
Hymnal: according to the use of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America, 1871
