The Loving Shepherd

Loving Shepherd of Thy Sheep

Loving Shepherd of thy sheep,
Keep thy lamb, in safety keep;
Nothing can thy power withstand,
None can pluck me from thy hand.

I would bless thee every day,
Gladly all thy will obey,
Like thy blessed ones above,
Happy in thy perfect love.

Loving Shepherd, ever near,
Teach thy lamb thy voice to hear;
Suffer not my steps to stray
From the straight and narrow way.

Where thou leanest I would go,
Walking in thy steps below,
Till before my Father's throne,
I shall know as I am known.

- Jane Leeson
