Hymn - “Lord, Faithful Shepherds Grant Your Sheep”
“Lord, Faithful Shepherds Grant Your Sheep”
Tune: Just As I Am
“O God of Mercy, God of Light”
Hymn # 397 from Lutheran Worship
Lord, faithful shepherds grant your sheep,
That all you call, you also keep.
May they your word and voice so speak,
That all is done in you.
Since you have called your sheep by name,
Guard and defend us all the same,
For in the waters you did claim,
Our lives belong to you.
Keep and defend us from the thief,
From his temptations, grant relief,
So that in all our joy or grief,
We rest secure in you.
Bless us, your flock, and be our gate,
Through you we find a heavenly fate.
Until you call us home, we wait,
Then we shall live with you.
