I’m glad that I have a Good Shep­herd,
So pa­tient as Je­sus can be;
I know that He loves lit­tle child­ren,
And so I am sure He loves me.


’Tis Je­sus, my shep­herd, who loves me;
He calls me His own lit­tle lamb;
I know that He al­ways will bless me,
And I’ll love Him wher­ev­er I am.

I’m glad that I have a Good Shep­herd,
Who helps me His word to obey;
He walks at my side, and He leads me,
For fear I should wan­der away.


I’m glad that I have a Good Shep­herd,
To keep me from trou­ble and wrong;
Who some­time will take me to Hea­ven,
That beau­ti­ful coun­try of song.
