Lead Us Back to You

Oh Jesus we are harassed and helpless
like sheep without a shepherd
Our wills weak
Our love small

Oh Jesus we are wandering
chasing after other lovers
but You Jesus
—You Jesus we have forgot

I am the good shepherd
the good shepherd lays down His life for the sheep

I am the good shepherd
I know my sheep and my sheep know me—

just as the Father knows me and I know the Father—
and I lay down My life for the sheep

Oh Jesus, You bore our sins
in Your body on the cross
so that we might die to sins
and live for righteousness
By Your wounds we have been healed
for we were like sheep going astray
but now we have returned
returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of our souls

Oh Jesus take upon Yourself our adulterous love
and give us love anew
Oh Jesus lead us back
—lead us back to You
