To Thee, O Christ, Our God,

tr., John Brownlie


To Thee, O Christ, our God,

Great Shepherd, who didst bear

The wandering sheep that strayed

Back to Thy shepherd care;


Who, pitying, gav'st Thy life,

That we might stray no more, --

To Thee our hearts we raise,

And Thee our songs adore.


Blest Spirit, source of life,

From Hades' fearful gloom

Thou brought'st the Shepherd, Christ,

Who lay in mortal tomb,


That He might still provide,

And tend, and guard, and keep,

Where'er His flock, abides

One Shepherd, of His sheep.

heavy laden with thy grief
