1 Great Shepherd of Thy sheep,
Who all Thy flock dost keep,
Leading by waters calm,
Do Thou my footsteps guide,
To follow by Thy side,
Make me Thy little lamb.

2 I fear I may be torn
By many a sharp-set thorn,
As far from Thee I stray;
My weary feet may bleed,
For rough are paths which lead
Out of Thy pleasant way.

3 But when the road is long,
Thy tender arm, and strong,
The weary one will bear;
And Thou wilt wash me clean,
And lead to pastures green
Where all the flowers are fair.

4 Till, from the soil of sin
Cleansed and made pure within,
Dear Saviour, whose I am,
Thou bringest me in love,
To Thy sweet fold above,
A little snow-white lamb.
