Hymnal: Psalms, Hymns and Spiritual Songs #XCII (1792) Meter: 184.108.40.206 Hymnal Title: Psalms, Hymns and Spiritual Songs First Line: As David kept his father's flock Lyrics: 1 As David kept his father's flock,
The lion bare one lamb away:
In wrath he rose, the monster smote;
And his right arm redeem'd the prey.
2 Jesus, a greater shepherd far,
The roaring lion rends in twain;
Plucks from his jaws each captive lamb,
And brings them to the fold again.
3 One Lord there is—and one the fold;
All nations form this shepherd's sheep:
The conq'ring Lord, the living God,
Faithful and true his fold shall keep. Topics: Particular Types, and General Prophesies of Jesus, from the Legal and Prophetic Dispensations Scripture: 1 Samuel 17:34 Languages: English
