Lord Jesus, Thou art the Good Shepherd
Who laid down His life for the sheep;
That joy might be known
By all of Thine own
Thy sorrow was bitter and deep.
Lord Jesus, Thou art the Great Shepherd
Whom God brought again from the dead;
Since Thou art alive
Thy flock now may thrive
As skillfully nourished and led.
Lord Jesus, Thou art the Chief Shepherd-
The first place in all things is Thine;
When Thou dost appear
And we are drawn near
Thy love will unfadingly shine.
