Mary Baker Eddy’s classic exposition on Jesus’ words to Peter, “Feed my sheep,” set to a simple, childlike melody. At first the composer resisted bringing out this setting due to the simplistic, pentatonic nature the melody. As it turns out, it is his most popular setting!

Lyrics

Feed My Sheep

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.
