Hymns about Jesus the Good Shepherd

This is a selection of hymns about Jesus the Good Shepherd.

It includes hymns based on psalm 22 / 23 ("The Lord's my shepherd....), and on other pieces of scripture where the same pastoral image is used, including
  • The Parable of the Lost Sheep - in Matthew 18:12–14 and Luke 15:3–7

The list is grouped into two sections:
  • Free-use (either copyright has expired, or the author has allowed them to be freely used)
  • Still subject to copyright and so can only be used if you are covered by a copyright license.

Both children's and adults hymns / songs are included in each list - because except for the youngest of children, it is is difficult to draw a clear distinction between them.
