Our Father God and Shepherd, Who guides us in Your ways,
Who tenderly directs us in paths of truth and grace -
Though often times we suffer, beset with many fears,
With patient hope and firm faith, help us to persevere.
In mercy love and patience, You hem our lives with peace!
Your rod and staff bring comfort though disconcerted we
Forget Your Father's heart is set on our holiness -
You draw us back to Your fold - to pastures of Your rest.
