Hymn 103 - "We'll sing of the Shepherd that died,"


We'll sing of theShepherd that died,

That died for the sake of the flock;

His love to the utmost was tried,

But firmly endured as a rock.



What love from this Shepherd did flow,

When in care for the sheep He was led

To stand between them and the foe,

And lay down His life in their stead!



Our song then for ever shall be

Of the Shepherd who gave Himself thus;

No subject's more glorious than He,

No theme more affecting to us.



Of Him and His love will we sing,

His praises our tongues shall employ,

Till heavenly anthems we bring

In yonder bright regions of joy.
