1 See the gentle Shepherd standing
Where the quiet waters flow;

Refrain:
Where he leads we will follow,
Where he leads we will follow,
Where he leads we will follow,
We will follow all the way.

2 Only by the door we enter;
All who enter he will save;
Life abundantly bestowing,
Though his life the Shepherd gave. [Refrain]

3 Safe within the fold he leads us,
He the Shepherd, we his own;
And as him the Father knoweth,
Precious thought—of him we're known. [Refrain]
