JESUS the good Shepherd is;

By A Collection of Hymns

      6-7s. Psalm xxiii.
      1 JESUS the good Shepherd is;
      Jesus died the sheep to save;
      He is mine, and I am his;
      All I want in him I have,
      Life, and health, and rest, and food,
      All the plenitude of God.

      2 Jesus loves and guards his own;
      Me in verdant pastures feeds;
      Makes me quietly lie down,
      By the streams of comfort leads:
      Following him where'er he goes,
      Silent joy my heart o'erflows.

      3 He in sickness makes me whole,
      Guides into the paths of peace;
      He revives my fainting soul,
      Stablishes in righteousness;
      Who for me vouchsafed to die,
      Loves me still, - I know not why!

      4 Unappalled by guilty fear,
      Through the mortal vale I go;
      My eternal Life is near;
      Thee my Life in death I know;
      Bless thy chastening, cheering rod,
      Die into the arms of God!

      5 Till that welcome hour I see,
      Thou before my foes dost feed;
      Bidd'st me sit and feast with thee,
      Pour'st thy oil upon my head;
      Giv'st me all I ask, and more,
      Mak'st my cup of joy run o'er.

      6 Love divine shall still embrace,
      Love shall keep me to the end;
      Surely all my happy days
      I shall in thy temple spend,
      Till I to thy house remove,
      Thy eternal house above!
