[Refrain:]
You hear the lambs a-cryin'
hear the lambs a-cryin',
hear the lambs a-cryin';
O Shepherd, feed my sheep.

1 My Saviour spoke these words so sweet,
O shepherd, feed my sheep.
Saying 'Peter, if you love me, feed my sheep.'
O shepherd, feed my sheep. [Refrain]

2 O Lord, my love you see and know;
O shepherd, feed my sheep.
Then give me grace to love you more;
O shepherd, feed my sheep. [Refrain]

3 O wasn't it an awful shame?
O shepherd, feed my sheep.
He hung three days in mortal pain.
O shepherd, feed my sheep. [Refrain]
