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!

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
