1. The Shepherd loves His little lambs,

And when they go astray,

He seeks them as they wander;

He calls each one by name.

They listen for the Shepherd’s voice;

They run to Him, and then

He welcomes them with loving arms

When they return to Him.

2. The Savior loves His little ones,

And if I leave His side,

He seeks me as I wander

By day or darkest night.

I’ll listen for the Savior’s call.

I’ll come to Him, and then

He’ll welcome me with loving arms

When I return to Him.

3. The Savior marks the path for me;

He shows me how to live.

And if I stray or wander,

I know He will forgive.

So I will heed the Savior’s voice;

I’ll turn away from sin,

And He will fill my heart with joy

When I return to Him.
