Verse 1
Jesus is our Shepherd, wiping every tear;
Folded in His bosom, what have we to fear?
Only let us follow whither He doth lead,
To the thirsty desert, or the dewy mead.

Verse 2
Jesus is our Shepherd: well we know His voice,
How its gentlest whisper makes our heart rejoice;
Even when He chideth, tender is His tone:
None but He shall guide us; we are His alone.

Verse 3
Jesus is our Shepherd, for the sheep He bled;
Every lamb is sprinkled with the blood He shed:
Then on each He setteth His own secret sign:
They that have My Spirit, these, saith He, are Mine.

Verse 4
Jesus is our Shepherd, Guarded by His arm,
Though the wolves may ravin, none can do us harm:
When we tread death's valley, dark with fearful gloom,
We will fear no evil victors o'er the tomb.
