The Lord Himself shepherds His people. He calls them, gathers them, tends them, and brings back the lost. What a Shepherd you have in Jesus!

11 For thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I, even I, will both search my sheep, and seek them out. 12 As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day. 13 And I will bring them out from the people, and gather them from the countries, and will bring them to their own land, and feed them upon the mountains of Israel by the rivers, and in all the inhabited places of the country. 14 I will feed them in a good pasture, and upon the high mountains of Israel shall their fold be: there shall they lie in a good fold, and in a fat pasture shall they feed upon the mountains of Israel. 15 I will feed my flock, and I will cause them to lie down, saith the Lord GOD. 16 I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that which was driven away, and will bind up that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sick: but I will destroy the fat and the strong; I will feed them with judgment.(KJV)

1. I am Jesus’ little lamb, 
Ever glad at heart I am; 
For my Shepherd gently guides me, 
Knows my need, and well provides me, 
Loves me every day the same, 
Even calls me by my name. 

2. Day by day, at home, away, 
Jesus is my Staff and Stay. 
When I hunger, Jesus feeds me, 
Into pleasant pastures leads me; 
When I thirst, He bids me go 
Where the quiet waters flow. 

3. Who so happy as I am, 
Even now the Shepherd’s lamb? 
And when my short life is ended, 
By His angel host attended, 
He shall fold me to His breast, 
There within His arms to rest.
