You're the shepherd of my heart so treat it tenderly

It's a heart that needs your everloving care

You're the shepherd of my heart until eternity lead it not into the valley of despair

While it's in your keeping guard it with your love

Shelter it from harm along life's way

You're the shepherd of my heart and darling honestly

It's a heart that will not ever go astray

You're the shepherd of my heart so surely you must know

You have but to speak and my heart will obey

It's at your command my dear because it loves you so

So my darling shepherd guide it where you may

If it be green pastures or a rocky road it will follow you and not ask why

You're the shepherd of my heart until the trumpet blows

And I go to meet the shepherd in the sky
