Shepherd of Israel, keeping thy sheep

Full 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]
