1 When I need a tender shepherd,
Who will lead whate’er betide,
By the still or troubled waters,
Who will be my faithful guide?

Jesus, how I love Him,
More than all the world beside!
Jesus, how I love Him!
He alone shall be my guide.

2 Who will lead me to the fountain
Where the soul is satisfied?
To the spring of love and mercy,
Who will be my faithful guide? [Refrain]

3 When my erring footsteps falter,
Who in love will then abide?
Who will give me grace sufficient,
Who will be my faithful guide? [Refrain]

4 Who, when twilight shadows gather,
Bids me on His bosom hide,
Till I wake in realms of glory,
There to meet my faithful guide? [Refrain]
