Suggested Tune AURELIA (7.6.7.6.D.) by S.S. Wesley


1.  Walk on ahead, Good Shepherd, I know your sweet voice true,    John 10:4

and even through the valley of death I'll follow you!    Psalm 23:4

Walk on ahead, Good Shepherd, I know you'll lead me through,

for though I oft' go straying, I know you're ever true.    1 Peter 2:25

 

2.  So draw me back, Good Shepherd, I need your rod and staff;    Psalm 23:4

my stubborn selfish trends, Lord, they lead me off the path.   

So draw me back, Good Shepherd, to paths of righteousness;    Psalm 23:3

Bring me back to my Shepherd and Guardian of my soul.

 

3.  Good Shepherd I have heard you - by name you call me out.    John 10:3

Guard me from thieves and robbers, and shield my heart from doubt John 10:1, 10:8, 10:9

The way, the truth and life, yes! My Lord you are the gate    John 14:6 John 10:7 John 10:9

for those who enter in there salvation's pastures wait.    John 10:9

 

4.  Walk on ahead, Good Shepherd, lead me to pastures green.    Psalm 23:2

For myriad other voices are not quite what they seem -

I will not trust the stranger whose voice I do not know.    John 10:5

That leads to death; destruction - no there I will not go!    John 10:10

 

5.  So lead me now, Good Shepherd, and I will follow you.

I'll live my life in fullness just as you call me to.   John 10:10

May your life and your light shine through me in such a way

that others too may know this: My Shepherd is the Way.
