Representative Text

1 Our Shepherd is the Savior true,
Calm, peaceful vales he leads us through,
Come, let us join in mirthful song,
As Christ, our Shepherd leads along.

Our Shepherd leads by crystal streams,
Where purest fountains brightly gleam;
We’ll follow him, both day and night,
For well we know he’ll lead us right.

2 We will not fear though storms arise,
And darkness overspreads the skies,
For well we know when near his side,
That he will be our faithful guide. [Refrain]

3 Thus we are safe whate’er betide,
If we but follow near his side,
He ever knows the better way,
We’ll follow meekly and obey. [Refrain]
