Lyrics

Shepherd (Show Me How to Go)

Lyrics by Mary Baker Eddy
Public Domain

Composer: Deborah Ann Offenhauser

Shepherd, show me how to go
O’er the hillside steep,
How to follow, 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.

So, when day grows dark and cold,
Tear or triumph harms,
Lead Thy lambkins to the fold,
Take them in Thy arms;

Feed the hungry, heal the heart,
Till the morning’s beam;
White as wool, ere they depart,
Shepherd, wash them clean.
