1.  Saviour! who Thy flock art feeding,

With the shepherd’s kindest care,

All the feeble gently leading,

While the lambs Thy bosom share;

2.  Now, these little ones receiving,

Fold them in Thy gracious arm;

There, we know, Thy word believing,

Only there, secure from harm.

3.  Never, from Thy pasture roving,

Let them be the lion’s prey;

Let Thy tenderness, so loving,

Keep them through life’s dangerous way;

4.  Then, within Thy fold eternal,

Let them find a resting-place;

Feed in pastures ever vernal,

Drink the rivers of Thy grace.
