301. Jesus, tender Shepherd, hear me

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

2 All this 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.
Tender Shepherd, tender Shepherd,
Keep me safe till morning light;
Thou hast warmed me, clothed and fed me,
Listen to my evening prayer.

3 May my sins be all forgiven,
Bless the friends I love so well;
Take us, Lord, at last, to heaven,
Happy there with Thee to dwell.
Tender Shepherd, tender Shepherd,
Keep me safe till morning light;
Take us, Lord, at last, to heaven,
Happy there with Thee to dwell.
