357. Faithful Shepherd, feed me


Friedrich Filitz, 1847

Thomas B. Pollock, 1868

Faithful Shepherd, feed me

In the pastures green;

Faithful Shepherd, lead me

Where thy steps are seen.

Hold me fast and guide me

In the narrow way;

So, with thee beside me,

I shall never stray.

Daily bring me nearer

To the heavenly shore;

May my faith grow clearer,

May I love thee more.

Hallow every pleasure,

Every gift and pain:

Be thyself my treasure,

Though none else I gain.

Give me joy or sadness,

This be all my care,

That eternal gladness

I with thee may share.

Day by day prepare me,

As thou seest best,

Then let angels bear me

To thy promised rest.
