The sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.@John 10:3

Andrew L. Skoog, 1890 (Ljuva Röst); translated from Swedish to English by the author (🔊 pdf nwc).

Follow Me! A call so tender
Falls upon my list’ning ear;
’Tis the voice of Christ, my Savior,
’Tis the Shepherd’s call I hear.

Refrain

O that call! Loving call!
’Tis the sweetest voice of all.
How it draws me nearer to Him
When I hear my Shepherd’s call!

Into pastures green He leadeth,
His own sheep He calls by name;
When their feet are sore and weary,
In His arms He carries them.

Refrain

Little flock, fear not! He shields thee
From the dangers of the land.
Hear His promise: None shall ever
Pluck thee from His mighty hand.

Refrain

In His steps, then, I would follow,
Seek in Him my all in all;
I am safe, whate’er befalls me,
When I heed His tender call.

Refrain
