​The Sheep Trust The Shepherd

This song is by Mark Heard and appears on the compilation album The Lost Artifacts Of An American Poet - The Original Recordings Of Mark Heard (2007).

Original video
Sheep come to the Shepherd when He calls their names
And they follow wherever He leads
Gentle is His voice as He calms and tames
And He sees that they get all they need

Rocky are the footpaths that He leads them on
High are the mountains, low the plains
Deep is the valley of the shadow of death
But the sheep trust the Shepherd just the same

Sheep need never frown when the wolf comes around
Though he howls and he growls at their feet
They can just rejoice at the Shepherd's voice
At His word comes the old wolf's defeat

Rocky are the footpaths that He leads them on
High are the mountains, low the plains
Deep is the valley of the shadow of death
But the sheep trust the Shepherd just the same

Me, I'll come to Jesus when He calls my name
And I'll follow wherever He leads
Gentle is His voice as He calms and tames
And He sees that I have all I need

Rocky are the footpaths that He leads us on
High are the mountains, low the plains
Deep is the valley of the shadow of death
But the sheep trust the Shepherd just the same
