Where Will I Shelter, My Sheep Tonight

Cat. #0931 (MFH #725) - As sung by Ollie Gilbert, Mountain View, Arkansas on October 28, 1969

VERSE 1
O, where will I shelter my sheep tonight
Where is that peaceful land
Where will I shelter my sheep tonight
Where th beast won't steal my land
We travel on, ---- far at night
Weary sin, sick an' sore
Where will I shelter my sheep tonight
I'll shelter my sheep in God's fold

VERSE 2
My soul is weak an' weary too
As I cross th burnin' sand
Where will I shelter my sheep tonight
Where is that peaceful land
We travel on ---- far at night
Weary sick sin an' sore
Where will I shelter my sheep tonight
I'll shelter my sheep in God's fold
