Lyrics

Jesus said with tender pleading,
Feed My lambs, feed My lambs;
In this world He’s interceding,
Feed My precious lambs.

Refrain

Feed My lambs, feed My lambs,
If you love Me,
saith the Savior;
Feed My lambs, feed My lambs;
If you love Me, feed My lambs.

Seek each little son and daughter,
Feed My lambs, feed My lambs;
Lead them to the living water,
Feed My precious lambs.

Refrain

Tell them of a home in glory,
Feed My lambs, feed My lambs;
And repeat the old, old story
To the precious lambs.
