Representative Text

1 O Jesus, our Shepherd, how sweet is thy voice,
Its gentle tones we know;
And in thy dear presence we always rejoice,
Wherever thou leadest we go.

Chorus:
Jesus now is calling, calling, calling,
Jesus now is calling you and me;
Where the Shepherd leadeth, leadeth, leadeth,
Gladly we will follow, we'll follow thee.

2 In pastures of plenty his flock ever feeds,
And there our souls find rest;
To wells of salvation he daily leads,
Where waters are calm and so blest! [Chorus]

3 O blessed assurance, he knoweth his sheep,
And he his own will claim;
His flock from the snares of the foe he will keep,
For he calleth them all by name. [Chorus]

4 O Jesus, our Shepherd, so kind and so good,
For us thy life to give;
And save us from sin by thine own precious blood,
That henceforth for thee we may live [Chorus]
