Tenderly He calls me
Lovingly He draws me
and I eagerly accept the invitation
to His Kingdom.
Though the world around me lingers
bids my soul slip through His fingers
still I stand upon His promise
to be there to see me though.
1. Since the Shepherd found me
put His loving arms around me
I am carried through the valleys
and the wilderness of days.
Fragrant pastures, quiet waters
or the wild and stormy mountains
all my ways are in His watching
and I rest within His care.
2. I praise Him for the mountains
and the valleys of my journey.
I praise Him for the rainbows
that He placed along the way.
I praise Him for the calling
and the questions that keep drawing me
into the light and wonder
of His everlasting day.
