Feed My Sheep

Music by Désirée Goyette
Words 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 know’st 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 ere they depart, Shepherd, wash them clean.
