Hymn/Song Information

Jesus the good Shepherd is




Jesus the good Shepherd is,
Jesus died the sheep to save;
He is mine and I am his,
All I want in him I have:
Life, and health, and rest, and food,
All the plentitude of God.


Jesus loves and guards his own;
Me in verdant pastures feeds,
Makes me quietly lie down,
By the streams of comfort leads:
Following him where’er he goes,
Silent joy my heart o’erflows.


He in sickness makes me whole,
Guides into the paths of peace;
He revives my fainting soul,
Stablishes in righteousness;
Who for me vouchsafed to die,
Loves me still—I know not why!


Unappalled by guilty fear,
Through the mortal vale I go;
My eternal Life is near;
Thee my Life in death I know;
Bless thy chastening, cheering rod,
Die into the arms of God!


Till that welcome hour I see,
Thou before my foes dost feed;
Bidd'st me sit and feast with thee,
Pour'st thy oil upon my head;
Giv'st me all I ask, and more,
Mak'st my cup of joy run o'er.


Love divine shall still embrace,
Love shall keep me to the end;
Surely all my happy days
I shall in thy temple spend,
Till I to thy house remove,
Thy eternal house above.
