See the gentle Shepherd standing
Where the quiet waters flow;
To the pastures green inviting,
Hungry, thirsty, let us go.

Refrain

Where He leads we will follow,
Where He leads we will follow,
Where He leads we will follow,
We will follow all the way.

Only by the door we enter,
All who enter He will save;
Life abundantly bestowing,
Though His life the Shepherd gave.

Refrain

Safe within the fold He leads us,
He the shepherd, we His own;
And as Him the Father knoweth,
Precious thought—of Him we’re known.
