You're the shepherd of my heart so treat it tenderly
It's a heart that needs your ever loving care
You're the shepherd of my heart until eternity
Lead it not into the valley of despair

While it's in your keeping, guard it with your love
Shelter it from harm along life's way
You're the shepherd of my heart and, darling, honestly
It's a heart that will not ever go astray

You're the shepherd of my heart so surely you must know
You have but to speak and my heart will obey
It's at your command, my dear, because it loves you so
So, my darling shepherd, guide it where you may

If it be green pastures or a rocky road
It will follow you and not ask why
You're the shepherd of my heart until the trumpet blows
And I go to meet the shepherd in the sky
