1 I’m glad that I have a “Good Shepherd,”
So patient as Jesus can be;
I know that He loves little children,
And so I am sure He loves me.

‘Tis Jesus, my Shepherd who loves me,
He calls me His own little lamb;
I know that He always will bless me,
And I’ll love Him wherever I am.

2 I’m glad that I have a “Good Shepherd,”
Who helps me His word to obey;
He walks at my side and He leads me,
For fear I should wander away. [Refrain]

3 I’m glad that I have a “Good Shepherd,”
To keep me from trouble and wrong;
Who sometime will take me to heaven,
That beautiful country of song. [Refrain]
