Representative Text

1 Send out the shepherds to gather them in,
Out in the highways and byways of sin;
Gather the lambs who are straying and cold,
Into the great Shepherd’s fold.

Refrain:
Gather them in, gather them in,
Gather the lambs who are straying and cold;
Gather them in, gather them in,
Into the great Shepherd’s fold.

2 Who’ll act as shepherds the lost ones to win?
Tell them of Jesus who died for their sin;
Lead them to Jesus who cares for their soul,
Into the great Shepherd’s fold. [Refrain]

3 Who’ll act as shepherds, and do it with joy?
Carry the message to that erring boy!
Make him to feel that you care for his soul,
Thus lead him into the fold. [Refrain]

4 Who’ll act as shepherds, and do it today?
Go for the straying lambs without delay;
God will reward thee with blessings untold,
Up in His great Shepherd fold. [Refrain]
