1Jesus, great Shepherd of the sheep,
To Thee for help we fly;
Thy little flock in safety keep;
For O! The wolf is nigh.
2Us into Thy protection take,
And gather with Thy arm;
Unless the fold we first forsake,
The wolf can never harm.
3O do not suffer him to part
The souls that here agree;
But make us of one mind and heart,
And keep us one in Thee!
4O do not suffer him to part
The souls that here agree;
But make us of one mind and heart,
And keep us one in Thee!
5Together let us sweetly live,
Together let us die;
And each a starry crown receive,
And reign above the sky. Amen.
