1 Tenderly guide us, O Shepherd of Love,
To the green pastures and waters above,
Guarding us ever by night and by day,
Never from Thee will we stray.

Refrain:
Never, never,
Never, oh, never for Thou art the way;
Never, never,
Never from Thee will we stray.

2 What tho’ the heavens with clouds be o’ercast,
Fearful the tempest and bitter the blast;
What tho’ the river of death bar the way,
Never from Thee will we stray. [Refrain]

3 Over our weakness Thy strength hath been cast,
Keep us in meekness, Thine own till the last;
Then, safely folded, where Thou art the day,
Never from Thee will we stray. [Refrain]
