We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

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

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And what a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns.

And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source. 

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, 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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. 

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,

Jesus shepherd of the sheep, Pity my unsettled soul

Jesus shepherd of the sheep, Pity my unsettled soul

Published in 8 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Jesu, Shepherd of the sheep,
Pity my unsettl'd soul!
Guide, and nourish me, and keep,
Till thy love shall make me whole:
Give me, perfect soundness give,
Make me stedfastly believe.

2 I am never at one stay:
Changing ev'ry hour I am:
But thou art, as yesterday,
Now and evermore the same;
Constancy to me impart,
'Stablish with thy grace my heart.

3 Lay thy weighty cross on me,
All my unbelief controul:
Till the rebel cease to be,
Keep him down within my soul:
That he never more may move,
Root and ground me fast in love.

4 Give me faith to hold me up,
Walking over life's rough sea;
Holy, purifying hope
Still my soul's sure anchor be:
That I may be always thine,
Perfect me in love divine.
