The Good Shepherd

Oh, Shepherd, how You care for us!

You lead and tend and shelter us.

And we do not lack anything

For You are our eternal king.


We are Yours! We lift one voice

to honor, love, and to rejoice!

Take our hearts, and guard, and keep,

Oh, loving Shepherd of Your sheep!

We, Your sheep, had gone astray

betrayed by lust to our own way,

wounded by the wolves of sin—

lost and hopeless and condemned.

You have given us Your grace—

laid down your life to take our place.

You rose triumphant o’er the grave—

Our living Shepherd, strong to save!

Teach us, Lord, to know Your voice,

to follow You—the only choice.

Satisfy us with Your love,

and set our hearts on things above.

Lord, we never have to fear

for, You our God, are always near.

Stop our footsteps when we roam,

and lead us gently, safely home
