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!

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]
