Words (1839) by Mary Lundie Duncan (1814-1840), for her children


1.  Jesus, tender Shepherd, hear me;

Bless Thy little lamb to-night;

Through the darkness be Thou near me;

Watch my sleep till morning light.

2.  All this day Thy hand has led me,

And I thank Thee for Thy care;

Thou hast clothed me, warmed and fed me;

Listen to my evening prayer.

3.  Let my sins be all forgiven;

Bless the friends I love so well;

Take me, when I die, to heaven,

Happy there with Thee to dwell.
