Faithful Shepherd, feed me
In the pastures green;
Faithful Shepherd, lead me
Where thy steps are seen.

Hold me fast and guide me
In the narrow way;
So, with thee beside me,
I shall never stray.

Daily bring me nearer
To the heavenly shore;
May my faith grow clearer,
May I love thee more.

Hallow every pleasure,
Every gift and pain:
Be thyself my treasure,
Though none else I gain.

Give me joy or sadness,
This be all my care,
That eternal gladness
I with thee may share.

Day by day prepare me,
As thou seest best,
Then let angels bear me
To thy promised rest.

Amen.
