He feed­eth His flock like a shep­herd,
And ten­der­ly guid­eth their way;
His ban­ner of mer­cy is o’er them,
Their re­fuge by night and by day.


O won­der­ful Sav­ior,
Precious Re­deem­er and friend;
He lov­eth the faith­ful that trust Him,
And lov­eth them un­to the end.

He ne­ver will leave nor for­sake them,
His own He hath pro­mised to keep;
So great was His love and com­passion,
He laid down His life for the sheep.


He feedeth His flock like a shepherd,
And makes them in Him to rejoice;
They walk in the light of His presence,
And know the glad sound of His voice.


He feedeth His flock like a shepherd,
And oh, ’twill be rapture untold,
When all shall be gathered together,
At home in the dear upper fold.
