Representative Text

1 Tell me, whom my soul doth love,
Where Thy flock are feeding;
Where the pastures which they rove—
Thou their footsteps leading?

2 Tell me, sheltered from the heat,
Where at noon they rest them;
Where at night their safe retreat—
Fold, where none molest them?

3 Strong is Thy protecting arm;
Richly Thou providest;
Feeding, resting—kept from harm—
Blest the flock Thou guidest.

4 Noon and night be my defence;
Let no foe ensnare me;
Bring me to the Shepherd’s tents—
In Thy bosom bear me.
