128. You Hear the Lambs a-Cryin'

Refrain:
You hear the lambs a-cryin’,
hear the lambs a cryin’,
hear the lambs a-cryin,’
O Shepherd, feed my sheep.
You hear the lambs a-cryin’,
hear the lambs a cryin’,
hear the lambs a-cryin’,
O Shepherd, feed my sheep.

1 My Savior spoke these words so sweet,
O Shepherd, feed my sheep,
sayin’, "Peter, if you love me, feed my sheep.”
O Shepherd, feed my sheep. [Refrain]

2 O Lord, I love Thee, Thou dost know;
O Shepherd, feed my sheep.
O give me grace to love Thee more.
O Shepherd, feed my sheep. [Refrain]

3 Wasn’t that an awful shame?
O Shepherd, feed my sheep.
He hung three hours in mortal pain.
O Shepherd, feed my sheep. [Refrain]
