We'll Sing Of The Shepherd That Died

by Thomas Kelly (1769-1854)

Tune: Elland 8s. Dactylic

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.

I much appreciate the lovely non-instrumental singing and the focus on the dear Lord Himself that there is in Brethren hymns.

Mr Hogg is fortunate that he cannot hear the piano.

It's not been played according to the book, either!
