Troubles and trials often betray those
Causing the weary body to stray
But we shall walk beside the still water
With the good shepherd leading the way

Going up home to live in green pastures
Where we shall live and die never more
Even the Lord will be in that number
When we have reached that heavenly shore

Those who have strayed were sought by the master
He who once gave his life for the sheep
Out on the mountain still He is searching
Bringing them in forever to keep

We will not heed the voice of the stranger
For he would lead us on to despair
Following home with Jesus our savior
We shall all reach that country so fair
