343. Savior, who thy flock art feeding
Evening Prayer (Stainer):
John Stainer, 1898
Savior, who thy flock art feeding,
With the shepherd's kindest care,
All the feeble gently leading,
While the lambs thy bosom share:
Now, these little ones receiving,
Fold them in thy gracious arm;
There we know, thy word believing,
Only there secure from harm.
Never from thy pasture roving
Let them be the lion's prey;
Let thy tenderness, so loving,
Keep them all life's dangerous way.
Then, within thy fold eternal,
Let them find a resting-place;
Feed in pastures ever vernal,
Drink the rivers of thy grace.
