       Shepherd, show me how to go
         O'er the hillside steep,
       How to gather, how to sow, -
         How to feed Thy sheep;

MISC 398

       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.
