#294: Savior, Like a Shepherd Lead Us

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

Savior, like a shepherd lead us,

Much we need Thy tender care;

In Thy pleasant pastures feed us

For our use Thy folds prepare.

Blessed Jesus, Blessed Jesus,

Thou hast bought us, Thine we are;

Blessed Jesus, Blessed Jesus,

Thou hast bought us, Thine we are.

2

We are Thine – do Thou befriend us,

Be the Guardian of our way;

Keep Thy flock, from sin defend us,

Seek us when we go astray;

Blessed Jesus, Blessed Jesus,

Hear, O hear us when we pray;

Blessed Jesus, Blessed Jesus,

Hear, O hear us when we pray.

3

Thou hast promised to receive us,

Poor and sinful tho we be;

Thou hast mercy to relieve us,

Grace to cleanse and power to free:

Blessed Jesus, Blessed Jesus,

Early let us turn to Thee;

Blessed Jesus, Blessed Jesus,

Early let us turn to Thee.

4

Early let us seek Thy favor,

Early let us do thy will;

Blessed Lord and only Savior,

With Thy love our bosoms fill:

Blessed Jesus, Blessed Jesus,

Thou hast loved us, love us still;

Blessed Jesus, Blessed Jesus,

Thou hast loved us, love us still.
