Sonnet: The Righteous


The righteous need not fear a thing on earth;
Their war against evil is fought by God;
In all the crosses, life in time may bring,
The Maker stands by righteous flock as Lord!

The righteous are the sheep that Christ shepherds;
The Good Shepherd takes care of His own flock;
They do not mingle among alien herds;
They eat good grass without a single rock!

God loves the righteous immensely by heart;
They listen faithfully to His commands;
The Shepherd knows the meadow’s every part;
Lost ones are found and safe in Shepherd’s hands!

The righteous are the Shepherd’s precious wealth;
He monitors their movements and their health!

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
