Representative Text

1 Shepherd, sweet and fair, and holy,
Hear, oh hear me while I pray,
Let a child so weak and lowly,
Be thy care in life's young day,
Jesus only, Jesus only,
Hear in pity, hear me pray.

2 When thy voice the stillness breaking,
Seems to whisper soft to me;
"Child of sin, the world forsaking;
Take thy cross and follow Me."
Jesus only, Jesus only,
Give me grace to learn of Thee.

3 Grace to seek Thee as my Saviour.
Grace to trust Thee as thy Friend,
Grace to love Thee as my Father,
And thy sweet commands attend,
Jesus only, Jesus only,
Now and ever--without end.
