From Sheep to Shepherd!


The Lord’s my Good Shepherd;
He knows all that I want;
He cares for me all life,
And helps me out of strife.

He walks beside me, so
I need not fear a thing;
He finds a new meadow,
And water pure to drink.

He’ll give his life for me;
No wolves dare scare the sheep;
With staff, he leads the flock
From pastures to the rock.

Some sheep could be shepherds!
God’s calling everyone;
The task is tough but then,
Reward is sure heaven!

To decide then is ours;
To lead the flock like Christ;
- A life of sacrifice;
- A job that’s worth the price!

Which sheep will shepherd turn?
And feed the lambs and sheep;
The calling is from God,
LET RIGHTEOUS HEARTS GIVE NOD!

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
