The Great Shepherd
The Sheep were feasting down by the
The green grass of revelation lush on every hand
Nothing to fear the Shepherd watching over
Keeping away the lions, bears and wolves
Standing as a gate between them and
that which would hurt them
The Great Shepherd guarding watching
overseers were watching making sure all are fed
Listening for His call that warns them
with all to take heed to the voice
to the young, weak, torn and sore
Encouraging them to go to the Great
For a blessing, healing, comfort and
The hireling shepherds are calling 'follow
me I know the way'
Shepherds who work for money not with
love and compassion
Those who do not really care for the
bleating of the sheep
Shepherds who desert in time of crisis,
who will not work 24/7
These loudly call but His sheep will
The sheep are deaf to the cries, to
strangers they will not heed
The pasture has become trampled, the
grass crushed by many feet
The still waters consumed, muddied by
many thirsty heads
The sheep have become hungry; they compete
for the last blades of grass
They bleat in desperation they cry out
The weak and the dying plead for new
The grass has all gone, it is time to move on
Individual names are being called in the distance
The Good Shepherd has risen and is calling
They gather around waiting in anticipation
He counts each head to leave not one
"Come" they hear "Keep
close in my footsteps"
They journey begins to the new lush
grass of joy.

doth not leave behind the ninety-nine in the wilderness, and go on after the
lost one, till he may find it?

Heb 13:20 And the God of the peace, who did bring up out of the dead the great shepherd of the sheep--in the blood of an age-during covenant--our Lord Jesus,
10:4 And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the
sheep follow him: for they know his voice. And a stranger will they not follow,
but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.
Psa 95:7 For he is our God; and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. To day if ye will hear his voice,
Psa 79:13 So we thy people and sheep of thy pasture will give thee thanks for ever: we will shew forth thy praise to all generations.
Joh 21:15 So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs.
Let the words of my mouth and the meditation
of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, my strength and my redeemer.
