Still is the night, quiet the stable.
Though it is late, I hear a cry;
The cry of the Shepherd tiny and feeble.
Though the voice is a baby, the call is from on high.
Decades have passed, dark is the garden.
Under a tree I hear a cry;
The cry of the Shepherd—begging God pardon
All our sins if we seek Him and to His bosom fly.
High on a hill, bruised and broken,
Up on a cross I hear a cry;
The cry of the Shepherd, last words now spoken,
“Father, into Thy hands my spirit draweth nigh.”
Jesus is Lord! Honor I give Him!
Through all my days I’ve heard His cry;
The cry of the Shepherd, calling His children
To return to His fold and dwell with Him on High.
