Jesu, Shepherd of the sheep,
Pity my unsettled soul!

Jesu, Shepherd of the sheep,
Pity my unsettled soul!
Guide, and nourish me, and keep,
Till thy love shall make me whole:
Give me perfect soundness, give,
Make me steadfastly believe.

I am never at one stay,
Changing every hour I am;
But thou art, as yesterday,
Now and evermore the same;
Constancy to me impart,
Stablish with thy grace my heart.

Give me faith to hold me up,
Walking over life’s rough sea,
Holy, purifying hope
Still my souls sure anchor be;
That I may be always thine,
Perfect me in love divine.
