Representative Text

1 God loves His own as the shepherd His sheep!
Faithful is He from all danger to keep;
With His almighty arm He will uphold,
Shield them and carry them safe to the fold.

Sing hallelujah, the tidings proclaim!
Let ev’ry thing that hath breath, praise His name!
Tell the glad story again and again,
God loves His own, hallelujah! Amen!

2 God loves His own—what a glorious thought!
For by the blood of His Son we were bought;
In His pavilion we safely may hide,
Under His wing may securely abide. [Refrain]

3 God loves His own! oh, ye nations awake!
For, as He lives, He will never forsake.
He’ll be a friend when all others have flown,—
Praise Him forever, He loveth His own. [Refrain]
