Representative Text

1 Like a tender shepherd Jesus leadeth me
Where the pasture greenest grows upon the lea,
Never was another friend so true as He;
Jesus, Shepherd of my soul.

Refrain:
He’s the Shepherd of my soul,
Peaceful are my days with Him to guard and guide,
He’s the Shepherd of my soul
Tender Shepherd of my soul.

2 Tho’ I left His kindly fold and went astray,
He with boundless mercy sought me day by day,—
Sought me, found me, led me back into the way,
Jesus, Shepherd of my soul. [Refrain]

3 Never shall I stray again from His dear side,
Never shun to go wherever He may guide,
Never doubt His kindly care whate’er betide,
Jesus, Shepherd of my soul. [Refrain]

4 To the weary Christ hath spoken, “Come to me,”
When the troubled heart is broken, “Come to me,”
Thou art helpless by this token, “Come to me,”
He’s the Shepherd of my soul. [Refrain]
