1. tFar away my steps have wandered,
On the rugged mountain's brow;
But to Thee my heart is crying,
Gentle Shepherd, save me now!

2. tThou hast borne my weight of sorrow,
At thy feet I humbly bow;
And my heart with thee is pleading,
Gentle Shepherd, save me now!

3. tThough Thy love I long have slighted,
Though ungrateful I have been,
To Thy fold my faith has brought me;
Let my weary soul come in.

4. tThough Thy love I long have slighted,
O'er my wasted years I weep;
In Thy blessed arms of mercy,
Shield and save Thy wandering sheep.

CHORUS
Save me now! Save me now!
Gentle Shepherd, save me now!
Unto Thee my heart is crying,
Gentle Shepherd, save me now!
