1.  Loving Shepherd of Thy sheep,

Keep me, Lord, in safety keep;

Nothing can Thy power withstand;

None can pluck me from Thy hand.

2.  Loving Shepherd, Thou didst give

Thine own life that I might live;

May I love Thee day by day,

Gladly Thy sweet will obey.

3.  Loving Shepherd, ever near,

Teach me still Thy voice to hear;

Suffer not my feet to stray

From the straight and narrow way.

4.  Where Thou leadest may I go,

Walking in Thy steps below;

Then, before Thy Father’s throne,

Jesus, claim me for Thine own.
