Lyrics

Jesus makes my heart rejoice,
I'm his lamb and know his voice.
He's my shepherd, gently guiding,
In his pastures now abiding;
Constant love to me he shows,
Yes, my very name he knows.
Trusting in his path always,
I go in and out with peace.
He will feed me with the treasure
Of his grace in richest measure,
When I thirst, to him I cry,
Living water he'll supply.
Shall I sing how blest I am,
Led by Jesus, as his lamb?
For when all my days are over,
In the arms of my dear Savior,
Welcome will be my delight,
Joy for ever in his sight.
