"Savior, Like a Shepherd Lead Us"

Savior, like a shepherd lead us,
much we need Thy tender care;
in Thy pleasen pastures feed us,
for our use Thy folds prepare:

|| Blessed Jesus, Blessed Jesus
Thou has bought us, Thine we are; ||

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; ||

Thous has promised to receive us,
Poor and singul though we be;
Thou hast mercy to relieve us,
Grace to cleanse a pow'r to free:

|| Blessed Jesus, Blessed Jesus,
early let us turn to Thee ||

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 lloved us, love us still ||
