#60: Shepherd of Eager Youth

Standard

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

Shepherd of eager youth,

Guiding in love and truth

Thru devious ways —

Christ, our triumphant King,

We come thy name to sing,

Hither Thy children bring

Tributes of praise.

2

Thou art our Holy Lord,

The all-subduing Word,

Healer of strife;

Thou didst Thyself abase

That from sin’s deep disgrace

Thou mightest save our race

And give us life.

3

Ever be near our side,

Our shepherd and our guide,

Our staff and song;

Jesus, Thou CHrist of God,

By Thy enduring word

Lead us where Thou hast trod,

Make our faith strong.
