1 Seeing I am Jesus' lamb,
Ever glad at heart I am
O'er my Shepherd, kind and good,
Who provides me daily food,
And His lamb by name doth call,
For He knows and loves us all.
2 Guided by His gentle staff
Where the sunny pastures laugh,
I go in and out and feed,
Lacking nothing that I need;
When I thirst, my feet He brings
To the fresh and living springs.
3 Must I not rejoice at this?
He is mine, and I am His,
And when these bright days are past,
Safely in His arms at last
He will bear me home to heaven;
Ah! what joy hath Jesus given.
