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 souls, if thou indeed

Shepherd of souls, if thou indeed

Published in 7 hymnals

Full Text

1 Shepherd of souls, if thou indeed
Hast rais'd me up thy flock to feed,
(Thy meanest servant me,)
O may I all thy burdens share,
And gently in my bosom bear,
The lambs redeem'd by thee.

2 Thy Spirit send me from above,
Spirit of meek, long-suffering love,
Of all-sufficient grace;
Endue me with thy constant mind,
So good, so obstinately kind
To our rebellious race.

3 A faithful steward of my Lord,
Give me to minister thy word,
And in thy steps to tread;
By every sore temptation tried,
By sufferings fully qualified
Thy ailing flock to lead.
