Lyrics

The lyrics are still copyright, so cannot be reproduced here, but they are available on this website. But a rough outline is:
Chorus:
Shepherd of my soul, I give You full control.
Wherever You may lead, I will follow.
I have made a choice, to listen for Your voice.
Wherever You may lead, I will go. 
1 Be it in a quiet pasture, or by ... 
2 Be it by a flowing river, or in a quiet night ...

See more ...


KEEP IN CASE ORIGINAL IS REMOVED, BUT DO NOT DISPLAY
Shepherd of my soul I give you full control,
Wherever You may lead I will foll-ow.
I have made the choice to listen for Your voice,
Wherever You may lead I will go.

Be it in a quiet pasture or by a gentle stream,
The Shepherd of my soul is by my side.
Should I face a mighty mountain or a valley dark and deep,
The Shepherd of my soul will be my guide.

Shepherd of my soul Oh You have made me whole,
Where’er I hear You call how my teaars flow.
How I feel your love how I want to serve
I gladly give my heart to You O – Lord.

Be it in the flowing river or in the quiet night,
The Shepherd of my soul is by my side.
Should I face the stormy weather or the dangers of this world.
The Shepherd of my soul will be my guide.
