Shepherd of Tender Youth


 

 


Shepherd of tender youth,
guiding in love and truth
through devious ways;
Christ our triumphant King,
we come Thy Name to sing
and here our children bring
to join Thy praise.

Thou art our holy Lord,
O all subduing Word,
Healer of strife.
Thou didst Thyself abase
that from sin's deep disgrace
Thou mightest save our race
and give us life.

Thou art the great High Priest;
Thou hast prepared the feast
of holy love;
and in our mortal pain,
none calls on Thee in vain;
Help Thou dost not disdain,
Help from above.

Ever be Thou our guide,
our shepherd and our pride,
our staff and song;
Jesus, Thou Christ of God,
by Thine enduring Word
lead us where Thou hast trod,
make our faith strong.

So now, and till we die,
sound we Thy praises high
and joyful sing;
 infants and the glad throng
who to Thy church belong,

unite to swell the song
to Christ, our King.

Clement of
Alexandria
