Representative 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.
