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.
