"To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice:
and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out."

          Savior, like a shepherd lead us, Much we need Thy tender care;
          In Thy pleasant pastures feed us, For our use Thy folds prepare:
          Blessed Jesus, Blessed Jesus, Thou hast bought us, Thine we are;
          Blessed Jesus, Blessed Jesus, Thou hast bought us, Thine we are.

          We are Thine; do Thou befriend us, Be the Guardian of our way;
          Keep Thy flock, from sin defend us, Seek us when we go astray;
          Blessed Jesus, Blessed Jesus, Hear, O hear us when we pray;
          Blessed Jesus, Blessed Jesus, Hear, O hear us when we pray.

          Thou hast promised to receive us, Poor and sinful though we be;
          Thou hast mercy to relieve us, Grace to cleanse, and pow'r to free:
          Blessed Jesus, Blessed Jesus, Early let us turn to Thee;
          Blessed Jesus, Blessed Jesus, Early let us turn to Thee.

          Early let us seek Thy favor; Early let us do Thy will;
          Blessed Lord and only Savior, With Thy love our bosoms fill:
          Blessed Jesus, Blessed Jesus, Thou hast loved us, love us still;
          Blessed Jesus, Blessed Jesus, Thou hast loved us, love us still.
