452 (C.M.) Charles Wesley

Jesus, great Shepherd of the sheep,

To Thee for help we fly;

Thy little flock in safety keep,

For O! the wolf is nigh.

He comes of hellish malice full,

To scatter, tear and slay;

He seizes ev'ry straggling soul,

As his own lawful prey.

Us into Thy protection take,

And gather with Thine arm;

Unless the fold we first forsake,

The wolf can never harm.

We laugh to scorn his cruèl pow'r,

While by our Shepherd's side;

The sheep he never can devour

Unless he first divide.

Oh, do not suffer him to part

The souls that here agree;

But make us of one mind and heart,

And keep us one in Thee!

Together let us sweetly live,

Together let us die;

And each a starry crown receive,

And reign above the sky.
