Hymn/Song Information

I met the Good Shepherd Just but on the




I met the Good Shepherd,
Just now on the plain,
As homeward He carried
His lost one again;
I marvelled how gently
His burden He bore;
And as He passed by me,
I knelt to adore.


O Shepherd, Good Shepherd,
Thy wounds they are deep;
The wolves have sore hurt Thee
in saving Thy sheep.
Thy raiment all over
with crimson is dyed;
And what is this wound
they have made in Thy side?


Ah me! How the thorns
Have entangled Thy hair,
And cruelly riven
That forehead so fair;
How feebly Thou drawest
Thy faltering breath;
And lo, on Thy face
Is the shadow of death.


O Shepherd, Good Shepherd,
and is it for me
This grievous affliction
has fallen on Thee?
Thy wounds make me love Thee,
my heart shall be Thine;
With Thee I will journey,
my Shepherd divine.

I met the Good Shepherd,
But now on the plain,
As homeward He carried
His lost one again;
I marvelled how gently
His burden He bore;
And as He passed by me,
I knelt to adore.
