400- O, Tell Me

MIDI MP3 Partition

1
O, tell me, Thou life and delight of my soul,
Where the flock of Thy pasture are feeding.
I seek Thy protection, I need Thy control;
I would go where my Shepherd is leading.

2
O, tell me the place where the flock are at rest,
Where the noontide will find them reposing;
The tempest now rages, my soul is distressed,
And the pathway of peace I am losing.

3
And why should I stray with the flocks of Thy foes,
In the desert where now they are roving;
Where hunger and thirst, where contentions and woes,
Where fierce conflicts their ruin are proving?

4
Ah, when shall my woes and my wandering cease,
And the follies that fill me with weeping?
O Shepherd of Israel, restore me that peace
Thou dost give to the flock Thou art keeping!

5
A voice from the Shepherd now bids me return
By the way where the footprints are lying;
No longer to wander, no longer to mourn;
And homeward my spirit is flying.
