Look to me and be ye holy;
I delight to feed my sheep.”
 
6 Christ alone, who merit saves us,
Taught by him we’ll own his name;
Sweetest of all names is Jesus!
How it doth our souls inflame!
Glory, glory, glory, glory,
Give him glory, he will keep,
He will clear our way before us,
The good Shepherd feeds his sheep.
 
Hymn 82 • How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord
HYMN 82. P. M.
 
1 How firm a foundation, ye saints of the  Lord,
Is laid for your faith in his excellent word;
What more can he say than to you he hath  said?
You, who unto Jesus, for refuge have fled.
 
2 In every condition—in sickness, in health,
In poverty’s vale, or abounding in wealth,
At home and abroad, on the land, on the sea,
As thy days may demand, so thy succor shall  be.
 
3 “Fear not, I am with thee; O be not dis may’d! [p. 111]
Look to me and be ye holy;
I delight to feed my sheep.”

He will clear our way before us,
The good Shepherd feeds his sheep.
