11. Jesus, tender Shepherd, hear me

1 Jesus, tender Shepherd, hear me;
bless Your little lamb tonight;
through the darkness please be near me;
watch my sleep till morning light.

2 All this day Your hand has led me,
and I thank You for Your care;
You have clothed me, warmed and fed me,
listen to my evening prayer.

3 Let my sins be all forgiven;
bless the friends I love so well;
take me, when I die, to heaven,
happy there with You to dwell.
