1 Thro’ the meadows green, inviting;
Where the Shepherd leads I’ll go;
Thro’ the shadows dark exciting,
Where the Shepherd leads I’ll go.

Hark! his voice is gently calling,
On my ear its strains are falling;
Tho’ the gloom may be appalling,
Where the Shepherd leads I’ll go, I’ll go,
Where the Shepherd leads I’ll go.

2 See! the gentle Shepherd leading:
Where the Shepherd leads I’ll go;
Hark! his voice in mercy pleading:
Where the Shepherd leads I’ll go. [Refrain]

3 Tho’ my feet be worn and weary,
Where the Shepherd leads I’ll go;
Tho’ the mountain side be dreary,
Where the Shepherd leads I’ll go. [Refrain]
