Oh Gentle Shepherd
recorded by Jim Reeves
written by Cindy Walker

C                  G7            C
My soul is lost so lonely and so cold
                          Am               D7   G7
Just like a lamb that has strayed from the fold
           C               C7    F
Across the barren waste of sin I roam
          C                G7              C
Oh gentle shepherd hear my cry and lead me home
                   G7                  C
The hours go by on frightened wings of flight
                         Am              D7    G7
While wolves of hell are waiting for the night
             C                  C7       F
To claim the soul that wandered from the fold
          C                G7              C
Oh gentle shepherd hear my cry and save my soul
                   G7             C
Oh gentle shepherd hear my lonely cry
                      Am              D7  G7
And in Thy cool green pastures let me lie
           C                  C7        F
Beside the still clear waters lead Thou me
          C             G7               C
Oh gentle shepherd safe forevermore with Thee
