9. Jesus, Tender Shepherd, Hear Me

1 Jesus, tender Shepherd, hear me;
Bless Thy little lamb tonight;
Thro’ the darkness be Thou near me;
Watch my sleep till morning light.

Bless me, oh, save me,
Save thy little lamb tonight;
Thro’ the darkness be thou near me,
Keep me safe till morning light.

2 All the day thy hand has led me,
And I thank Thee for Thy care;
Thou hast warmed me, clothed and fed me,
Listen to my evening prayer. [Refrain]

3 Let my sins be all forgiven;
Bless the friends I love so well;
Take us all at last to Heaven,
Happy there with Thee to dwell. [Refrain]
