P
erformed by Chicago a cappella at the AGO convention, June 2006

 



I heard an old recording of Marion Anderson singing this piece and fell in love with it.

Special thanks to chicago a cappella for a superb performance at the 2006 American Guild of Organists' National Convention and allowing me to use their recording on my site.

 


 TEXT

(Chorus)
You hear de lambs a-cryin', hear de lambs a-cryin',
hear de lambs acryin’, oh, shepherd, feed-a my sheep.

My savior spoke these words so sweet.
oh, shepherd, feed-a my sheep.
Saint Peter if you love me feed my sheep.
oh shepherd feed-a my sheep.

(Chorus)

Oh my Lord I love thee thou dost know.
oh, shepherd, feed-a my sheep.
Oh, give me grace to love Thee more.
oh, shepherd, feed-a my sheep.

(Chorus)
