On this date, June 20, 1799, hymn writer Dorothy Ann Thrupp was born. She would often pen songs and never sign them as she was reluctant to take credit to them. Consequently, there are some who question if she wrote the famous song that has typically been attributed to her. Regardless, the beautiful song is titled Saviour Like a Shepherd Lead Us.
Savior, like a shepherd lead us,
Much we need thy tender care
In thy pleasant pastures feed us
For our use thy folds prepare
Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus
Thou hast bought us, thine we are.
