Full Text

1 Shepherd of Israel, thou dost keep
With constant care thy humble sheep;
By thee inferior pastors rise
To feed our souls,and bless our eyes.

2 To all thy churches such impart,
Modeled by thy own gracious heart;
Whose courage, watchfulness, and love,
Men may attest, and God approve.

3 Fed by their active tender care,
Healthful may all thy sheep appear,
And, by their fair example led,
The way to Zion's pastures tread.

4 Here hast thou listened to our vows,
And scattered blessings on thy house;
Thy saints are succored, and no more
As sheep without a guide deplore.

5 Completely heal each former stroke,
And bless the shepherd and the flock;
confirm the hopes thy mercies raise,
And own this tribute of our praise.
