We'll Sing Of The Shepherd That Died



1 WE'LL sing of the Shepherd that died
That died for the sake of the flock;
His love to the utmost was tried,
But firmly endured as a rock.

2 When blood from a victim must flow,
This Shepherd, by pity, was led
To stand between us and the foe,
And willingly died in our stead.

3 Our song then for ever shall be
Of the Shepherd who gave Himself thus:
No subject's so glorious as He,
No theme so affecting to us.

4 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.
