Dear to the Heart of the Shepherd, 221 - Mary B. Wingate

 

  1. Dear to the heart of the shepherd, Dear are the sheep of his fold;
    Dear is the love that he gives them, Dearer than silver or gold.
    Dear to the heart of the Shepherd, Dear are his 'other" lost sheep;
    Over the mountains he follows, Over the waters so deep.
    Out in the desert they wander, Hungry and helpless and cold;
    Off to the rescue he hastens, Bringing them back to the fold.

 

  1. Dear to the heart of the Shepherd, Dear are the lambs of his fold;
    Some from the pastures are straying, Hungry and helpless and cold.
    See, the Good Shepherd is seeking, Seeking the lambs that are lost,
    Bringing them in with rejoicing, Saved at such infinite cost.
    Out in the desert they wander, Hungry and helpless and cold;
    Off to the rescue he hastens, Bringing them back to the fold.

 

  1. Dear to the heart of the Shepherd, Dear are the "Ninety and nine";
    Dear are the sheep that have wandered Out in the desert to pine.
    Hark! he is earnestly calling, Tenderly pleading today:
    "Will you not seek for my lost ones, Off from my shelter astray?"
    Out in the desert they wander, Hungry and helpless and cold;
    Off to the rescue he hastens, Bringing them back to the fold.

 

  1. Green are the pastures inviting; Sweet are the waters and still.
    Lord, we will answer thee gladly, "Yes, blessed Master, we will!
    Make us thy true undershepherds; Give us a love that is deep.
    Send us out into the desert, Seeking thy wandering sheep."
    Out in the desert they wander, Hungry and helpless and cold;
    Off to the rescue he hastens, Bringing them back to the fold.

 

 

Dearest Children, God is Near You, 96 - Charles L. Walker

 

  1. Dearest children, God is near you, Watching o'er you day and night,
    And delights to own and bless you, If you strive to do what's right.
    He will bless you, He will bless you, If you put your trust in him.

 

  1. Dearest children, holy angels Watch your actions night and day,
    And they keep a faithful record Of the good and bad you say.
    Cherish virtue! Cherish virtue! God will bless the pure in heart.

 

  1. Children, God delights to teach you By his Holy Spirit's voice.
    Quickly heed its holy promptings. Day by day you'll then rejoice.
    Oh, prove faithful, Oh, prove faithful To your God and Zion's cause.

 

 

Did You Think to Pray? 140 - Mary A. Pepper Kidder

 

  1. Ere you left your room this morning, Did you think to pray?
    In the name of Christ, our Savior, Did you sue for loving favor As a shield today?
    Oh how praying rests the weary! Prayer will change the night to day.
    So, when life gets dark and dreary, Don't forget to pray.

 

  1. When your heart was filled with anger, Did you think to pray?
    Did you plead for grace, my brother, That you might forgive another Who had crossed your way?
    Oh how praying rests the weary! Prayer will change the night to day.
    So, when life gets dark and dreary, Don't forget to pray.

 

  1. When sore trials came upon you, Did you think to pray?
    When your soul was full of sorrow, Balm of Gilead did you borrow At the gates of day?
    Oh how praying rests the weary! Prayer will change the night to day.
    So, when life gets dark and dreary, Don't forget to pray.

 

 

Do What Is Right 237 - Anonymous, The Psalms of Life, Boston, 1857.

 

  1. Do what is right; the daydawn is breaking, Hailing a future of freedom and light.
    Angels above us are silent notes taking Of ev'ry action; then do what is right!
    Do what is right; let the consequence follow. Battle for freedom in spirit and might;
    And with stout hearts look ye forth till tomorrow. God will protect you; then do what is right!

 

  1. Do what is right; the shackles are falling. Chains of the bondsmen no longer are bright;
    Lightened by hope, soon they'll cease to be galling. Truth goeth onward; then do what is right!
    Do what is right; let the consequence follow. Battle for freedom in spirit and might;
    And with stout hearts look ye forth till tomorrow. God will protect you; then do what is right!

 

  1. Do what is right; be faithful and fearless. Onward, press onward, the goal is in sight.
    Eyes that are wet now, ere long will be tearless. Blessings await you in doing what's right!
    Do what is right; let the consequence follow. Battle for freedom in spirit and might;
    And with stout hearts look ye forth till tomorrow. God will protect you; then do what is right!

 

 

Does the Journey Seem Long? 127 - Joseph Fielding Smith

 

  1. Does the journey seem long, The path rugged and steep?
    Are there briars and thorns on the way?
    Do sharp stones cut your feet As you struggle to rise
    To the heights thru the heat of the day?

 

  1. Is your heart faint and sad, Your soul weary within,
    As you toil 'neath your burden of care?
    Does the load heavy seem You are forced now to lift?
    Is there no one your burden to share?

 

  1. Let your heart be not faint Now the journey's begun;
    There is One who still beckons to you.
    So look upward in joy And take hold of his hand;
    He will lead you to heights that are new--

 

  1. A land holy and pure, Where all trouble doth end,
    And your life shall be free from all sin,
    Where no tears shall be shed, For no sorrows remain.
    Take his hand and with him enter in.
