1- Shepherd of my soul I shall follow Thee,
Oh, how sweet Thy voice is to me!
So guide me and lead me and show me the way,
My only desire is Thee.
2- I am my Beloved's and He is mine,
He calleth me sister and spouse,
Oh, how do I long for the day we shall wed,
In heaven in His Father's house.
3- Oh Thou Whose presence delighteth my soul,
And Whom in my distress I call,
My comfort by day and my refuge by night,
My stronghold whenever I fall.
4- Shepherd of my soul I beg Thee to tell,
Where Thou keepest Thy sheep to rest,
For why should I roam in the valley of tears,
And wander as one who is lost?
5- I ask thee to tell me daughters of Zion:
Have ye seen the One I adore?
I seek Him in vain in the night of my soul,
But lo, I can find Him no more.
