Erlene requested this one–Savior, Like a Shepherd Lead Us, here sung by the Joslin Grove Choir. I remember my mother and my grandma humming this as they went about their housework. Somehow in those days people were immersed in Christianity: not self-consciously, but as fish are immersed in water. That was our world.
And it still is: God grant it always will be.
Would you believe it? I originally mis-typed this headline as “Savior, Like a Sherpa Lead Us.” But if He is the Good Shepherd, can’t He also be the Good Sherpa–who can lead us safely up and down the most perilous mountain peaks?
Anyway, here’s Nathan and Lyle, plus family and friends, and Savior, Like a Shepherd Lead Us–a classic hymn first published in 1836.
Here’s a hymn I haven’t heard since I was a boy in Sunday school: Savior Like a Shepherd Lead Us. Published in 1859. Performed by Nathan on the auto-harp, with assorted family and friends, in Denton County, Texas.
Before we get into any of the depressing and unedifying news of this evil age, first the good news–Jesus Christ is King of Kings and Lord of Lords, now and forever; God the Father hears our prayers; and no one, no power in heaven or on earth, can wrest His people out of His hand.
And so forthwith, Savior Like a Shepherd Lead Us, from 1859, sung by the good folks down in Denton County, Texas.
