Representative Text

1 Oh, there is a fold well tended
By a shepherd kind and strong;
Ever from all harm defended—
Do you to this fold belong?

Little children, come to Jesus:
You may to this fold belong.
Knock, and He will bid you enter.
There is room enough for all.

2 All the lambs are kind and loving;
All obey their shepherd’s voice.
Day by day His kindness proving,
In His love they all rejoice. [Refrain]

3 Kind and gentle, loving ever,
Seeking those that go astray;
Down beside the crystal river,
There He leads them all the day. [Refrain]

4 Knock, and He will bid you enter;
For He never turns away
Those who seek His welcome tender,
But receives and bids them stay. [Refrain]
