Jesus, ten­der Shep­herd, hear me;
Bless Thy lit­tle lamb to­night;
Through the dark­ness be Thou near me;
Watch my sleep till morn­ing light.

All this day Thy hand has led me,
And I thank Thee for Thy care;
Thou hast clothed me, warmed and fed me,
Listen to my ev­en­ing pray­er.

Let my sins be all for­giv­en;
Bless the friends I love so well;
Take me, when I die, to Hea­ven,
Happy there with Thee to dwell.
