Do leave a comment if you like this hymn. It is one of my favourites. It is almost like a lullaby.

Lyrics: Dorothy A Thrupp
Music: William B Bradbury

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, thou dost 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 power to free.
Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus!
We will early turn to thee.
Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus!
We will early 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.

    Hi there. Thanks for the comment. Do stay tuned.

    Besides playing the piano, one can also sing to the LORD, either out loud on in our hearts. Amen.

    You said it right ” a lullaby”, I was taught that song when I was younger in French and my Aunt would have us sing this hymn as an opening an closing for our “nightly prayers”. Your Hymn takes me to places that I sometime forget about, once the sound start the words just flow. I never know in what language I would be singing along but it always come to me….Thanks!!!!!!!

    Keep up this good work. I’m posting links to this site to my facebook page in hopes of turning hearts to God.

    I love the old hymns and a little of the history with each one sends a powerful message.
