Representative Text

1 He feedeth his flock like a shepherd,
And gathers the young lambs with care;
He carries them safe in His bosom,
And shelters them tenderly there.

Refrain:
He feedeth His flock,
He feedeth His flock like a shepherd;
And gathers the lambs with His arms,
And gathers the lambs with His arms.

2 He calleth His sheep and they follow,
The voice of the Shepherd they know;
He leadeth them into green pastures,
And down where the still waters flow. [Refrain]

3 But some are lost out on the mountains,
The cold, barren mountains of sin;
And Jesus, the Shepherd so tender,
Is seeking to gather them in. [Refrain]

4 Are you of the wand’ring and lost ones?
Are you sick and hungry and cold?
Or, are you today of the saved ones,
The Shepherd has safe in the fold? [Refrain]

Lelia (Mrs. C.H.) Morris (1862-1929) was born in Pennsville, Morgan County, Ohio. When her family moved to Malta on the Muskingum River she and her sister and mother had a millinery shop in McConnelsville. She and her husband Charles H. Morris were active in the Methodist Episcopal Church and at the camp meetings in Sebring and Mt. Vernon. She wrote hymns as she did her housework. Although she became blind at age 52 she continued to write hymns on a 28-foot long blackboard that her family had built for her. She is said to have written 1000 texts and many tunes including "Sweeter as the years go by." Mary Louise VanDyke Go to person page >
