    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.
