Full Text

1. Out of the mountain, sad and forsaken,
Lost in its mazes, no light canst thou see;
Yet in His mercy, full of compassion,
Lo! the Good Shepherd is calling to thee.

Chours;
Calling to thee, calling to thee;
Jesus is calling, "Come unto Me,"
Calling to thee, calling to thee,
Hear the Good Shepherd calling to thee.

2. Far on the mountain, why wilt thou wander?
Deeper in darkness thy pathway will be;
Turn from thy roaming, fly from its dangers,
While the Good Shepherd is calling to thee. [Chorus]

3. Flee from thy bondage, Jesus will help thee,
Only believe Him, and thou shalt be free;
Wonderful mercy, boundless compassion,
Still the Good Shepherd is calling to thee. [Chorus]
