Great Shepherd Who Leadest Thy people in Love

Full Text

1. Great Shepherd Who leadest Thy people in love,
'Mid cherubim dwelling, shine Thou from above;
In might come and save us, Thy people restore,
And we shall be saved when Thy face shines once more.

O Lord God Almighty, in mercy restore,
And we shall be saved when Thy face shines once more.

3. When Thou shalt revive us Thy Name we will praise,
And nevermore, turning, depart from Thy ways;
O Lord God Almighty, in mercy restore,
And we shall be saved when Thy face shines once more.
