Original text and translations
1 Hear, O Jesu, Israel's Shepherd, hear us,
Thou that leadest Joseph like a sheep;
On the hilltop bleak be ever near us
In the darksome valley while we sleep.
2 Thy sweet voice amidst the storm to cheer us,
Thy blest footmarks for the narrow way;
Thy dear hand to hold up and to steer us,
For Thy help and guidance, Lord, we pray.
3 Thy dear voice, O Shepherd, true and tender,
All its wondrous tones Thy sheep would know;
To Thy call their prompt obedience render,
Follow Thee wherever Thou would go.
