Hymn 304 – “Shepherd, show me…,” Feed My Sheep,
Music: Lyman Brackett;
Lyrics: 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.
