JE S U, Shepherd of the Sheep,
Thou the Flock dost feed and keep,
Oh! with what a tender Care,
Dost thou all for them prepare.
Thou dost call them by their Names,
In thy Bosom bear the Lambs,
Oh! amazing Grace, that we
Should be so much lov'd by thee.

Thee, the Sheep profess and own.
Thee, they Love, and thee alone,
Thee, they follow in the Way,
Strangers they will not obey:
Thou hast made their Sins thy own,
And thy Life for them laid down,
O amazing Grace, &c,

Lord! poor wand'ring Sheep behold,
Bring us back into thy Fold,
Lead us into Pastures Green,
Where thy lovely Face is seen:
When thy Sheep in Judgment stand,
Place our Souls at thy right Hand,
O amazing Grace, &c.
