Like a Shepherd, Lead Us


Moses said to God, “If your presence will not go, do not carry us up from here."

Exodus 33:15
Savior, like a shepherd lead us,
much we need thy tender care;
in thy pleasant pastures feed us,
for our use thy folds prepare.
Blessèd Jesus, blessèd 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.
Blessèd Jesus, blessèd 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.
Blessèd Jesus, blessèd Jesus!
We will early turn to thee.
 Do­ro­thy A. Thrupp (1836)

When he has brought out all his own, he goes ahead of them, and the sheep follow him because they know his voice.
 John 10:4
Prayer after thinking about today's devotion:
Early let us seek thy favor,
early let us do thy will;
blessèd Lord and only Savior,
with thy love our bosoms fill.
Blessèd Jesus, blessèd Jesus!
Thou hast loved us, love us still.
 Do­ro­thy A. Thrupp (1836)

After your own thanksgivings & petitions, close with the Lord's Prayer.
