Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

Full Text

1 Jesus, gentle Shepherd,
Hear our songs of praise,
While to thee our voices
Cheerfully we raise;
We would be thy children,
Keep us from all wrong;
Jesus, gentle Shepherd,
Listen to our song.

2 Guide us in the pathway
Leading up to thee;
Gentle, meek and lowly
Ever may we be;
Praise to thee we offer,
For thy tender care;
Jesus, gentle Shepherd,
Hear our humble pray’r.

3 When our angry passions
Tempt us far to stray,
Bring us by thy spirit
To the narrow way;
Lead us safely onward,
To the heav’nly shore;
Jesus, gentle Shepherd,
Save us evermore.
