Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Shepherd of Israel, thou didst lead

Shepherd of Israel, thou didst lead

Published in 15 hymnals

Full Text

1 Shepherd of Israel, thou didst lead
Thy chosen flock the desert through,
And from between the cherubim
Thy mercy and thy favour show.

2 And though their sins provoked thee oft,
To give them to their foes a prey,
Yet didst thou, for thy mercy sake
As often turn thy wrath away.

3 But, ah! they fill'd the measure up
Of all their aggravated guilt,
When on the hill of Calvary
The blood of thine own Son they spilt.

4 And now for ages they have been
Cast out and banish'd from thy sight,
Wandering through all the earth, as those
In whom thou hast no more delight.

5 Yet is thy word of promise sure,
That they shall be again restor'd,
And with the gentile church unite
To worship and to serve the Lord.

6 Our faith in expectation waits,
To see that glorious morning rise,
O bid the shadows flee away,
And satisfy our longing eyes.
