Jim Reeves – Oh Gentle Shepherd lyrics

My soul is lost so lonely and so cold just like a lamb that has strayed from the fold
Across the barren waste of sin I roam
Oh gentle shepherd hear my cry and lead me home
The hours go by on frightened wings of flight
While wolves of hell are waiting for the night
To claim the soul that wandered from the fold
Oh gentle shepherd hear my cry and save my soul
Oh gentle shepherd hear my lonely cry and in Thy cool green pastures let me lie
Beside the still clear waters lead Thou me
Oh gentle shepherd safe forevermore with Thee
