Loving Shepherd Of Thy Sheep : Lyrics
1. Loving Shepherd of Thy sheep,
Keep Thy lamb, in safety keep;
Nothing can Thy power withstand,
None can pluck me from Thy hand.
2. Loving Saviour, Thou didst give
Thine own life that we might live,
And the hands outstretched to bless
Bear the cruel nails’ impress.
3. I would praise Thee every day,
Gladly all Thy will ...
