Full Text

1 I have a shepherd, one I love so well;
What He is to me tongue can never tell;
On the cross He suffered, shed His blood, and died,
That I might ever in His love confide.

Following Jesus ever day by day,
Nothing have I to fear when He leads the way;
Darkness or sunshine, whate’er befall,
Jesus the Savior is my all in all.

2 Pastures abundant doth His hand provide,
Still waters flowing ever at my side;
Goodness and mercy follow on my track;
With such a shepherd nothing can I lack. [Refrain]

3 When I would wander from the path astray,
Then He doth draw me back into the way;
In the darkest valley I need fear no ill,
For He my shepherd will be with me still. [Refrain]

4 When the work is over and the journey done,
Then He will lead me safely to my home;
There I shall dwell in rapture pure and sweet,
And with all the loved ones gather at His feet. [Refrain]
