Text

There is a fold whence none can stray,
And pastures ever green,
Where sultry sun, or stormy day,
Or night is ever seen.

There is a Shepherd living there,
The Firstborn from the dead,
Who tends with sweet, unwearied care
The flock for which He bled.

There congregate the sons of light,
Fair as the morning sky,
And taste of infinite delight
Beneath their Saviour's eye.
