If you're looking for a unique musical setting of Eddy's beloved poem, look no further. Not for the faint of heart, this rich melody and its accompanying chords are dark, weighty and highlight the striving and hardship of "the rugged way". Don't worry, there's light breaking through by the end, as we are ‘[washed] clean".

Lyrics

Feed My Sheep
Music by Rebecca Minor
Text by Mary Baker Eddy

Shepherd, Show me how to go
O’er the hillside steep.
How to gather, how to sow
How to feed Thy Sheep
I will listen for Thy voice
Lest my footsteps stray
I will follow and rejoice
All the rugged way

Thou wilt bind the stubborn will,
wound the callous breast
Make self righteousness be still
Break earth’s stupid rest
Strangers on a barren shore
Lab’ring long and lone
We would enter by the door
And Thou knowest Thine own

So, when day grows dark and cold
Tear or triumph harms
Lead Thy lambkins to the fold
Take them in thine arms
Feed the hungry, heal the heart
’Till the morning’s beam
White as wool, e’er they depart
Shepherd, wash them clean
