Lyrics

My sheep hear My voice,
And the path that I take,
They follow wherever I go;
My sheep know My voice
And come at my call,
But a stranger’s voice do they not know.

Refrain

My sheep know My voice, and day by day
They abide in the fold and go not astray,
They love Me because
I have made them my choice,
And they follow My call
For My sheep know My voice.

My sheep know My voice,
And the pastures of green,
Where I lead them so often to feed;
My sheep know My voice
And the cool sparkling stream
Where beside its still waters I lead.

Refrain

My sheep know My voice,
And the valley of death
Through which I shall lead them some day;
But no danger nor harm
Can touch one of them,
For I will be with them alway.
