1.  O dear Redeemer crucified,

Thou faithful Shepherd who hast died

To save from death Thy helpless sheep,

We pray Thee, risen Saviour, keep

In Thy secure protection still

The sheep who hearken to Thy will.

2.  All we like sheep have gone astray

From Thy blest fold and lost our way,

Left pleasant pastures, verdant lands,

For barren wastes and desert sands;

But O, Thy shepherd-love so deep

Sought till it found Thy erring sheep.

3.  O Shepherd Saviour, we rejoice

To be Thine own, to hear Thy voice.

Bought with a price, we now are Thine,

And known of Thee, O Love divine!

By grace unto Thy fold restored,

Let us not stray again, dear Lord.

4.  Dear Lord, our eyes of faith behold

In truth one Shepherd and one fold,

Kept through the Spirit’s bond of peace

In unity which ne’er shall cease.

As Thou hast promised, we shall be

Thine own in all eternity.
