	1. Tender Shepherd, Thou hast stilled
	Now Thy little lamb's brief weeping.
	Ah, how peaceful and how mild
	In its narrow bed 'tis sleeping!
	And no sigh of anguish sore
	Heaves that little bosom more.
	2. In this world of pain and care,
	Lord, Thou wouldst no longer leave it;
	To Thy heavenly meadows fair
	Lovingly Thou dost receive it.
	Clothed in robes of spotless white,
	Now it dwells with Thee in light.
	3. 0 Lord Jesus, grant that we
	There may live where it is living,
	There the blissful pastures see
	That it heavenly food are giving.
	Lost a while our treasured love,
	Gained forever, safe above.
