Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Shepherd of Israel, keeping thy sheep

Representative Text

1 Shepherd of Israel, keeping Thy sheep—
Never forgetting in slumber or sleep;
Folding them gently when night cometh on,
Going before them at break of the dawn!

Refrain:
Shepherd of Israel! Shepherd of love!
Watching Thy flock from the glory above!
Knowing how weary their wilderness way;
Praying for them—ever living to pray!

2 Shepherd of Israel, true to Thine own
When the false hireling servant hath flown;
Laying Thy life down their pardon to win,
Shedding Thy blood to redeem them from sin! [Refrain]

3 Shepherd of Israel, strong is Thine arm;
Shielding Thy flock from each threatening harm;
Gathering the lambs as they falter and fall,
Safe in Thy bosom enfolding them all! [Refrain]

4 Shepherd of Israel, soon to appear,
Soon to deliver Thy "little flock" here!
Just to behold Thee their richest reward—
Shepherd of Israel, Jesus, their Lord! [Refrain]
