Christ My Song - 1092
Jesus Christ, the Shepherd True - Light and Love
(Hannah K. Burlingham/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
Light and Love.
1. Jesus Christ, the Shepherd True,
knowing all that he would do,
came in his compassion deep,
came to seek and save the sheep.
2. God in mercy sent his Son
to a world by sin undone;
Jesus Christ was crucified;
'twas for sinners Jesus died.
3. O! the glory of the grace
shining in the Saviour's face;
telling sinners from above,
God is light and God is love.
4. Sin and death no more shall reign,
Jesus died and lives again;
in the glory's highest height,
see him, God's supreme delight!
5. All who in his name believe,
life, eternal life, receive;
Lord of all is Jesus now,
every knee to him must bow.
6. Christ the Lord will come again,
he who suffered once will reign;
every tongue at last shall own,
"Worthy is the Lamb" alone.
Hannah K. Burlingham, Wayside Songs, 1901, 180-181.
