1. Loving Shepherd of thy sheep,
Keep thy lambs, in safety keep;
Nothing can thy power withstand,
None can pluck them from thine hand.
2. Loving Saviour, thou didst give
Thine own life that they might live;
And the hands outstretched to bless
Bear the cruel nails' impress.
3. Loving Shepherd, ever near,
Teach thy lambs thy voice to hear;
Suffer not their steps to stray
From the strait and narrow way.
