The Good Shepherd

The Good Shepherd

From fear of the wolf and the lion
The Good Shepherd frees.
Into pastures of joy and plenty
The Good Shepherd leads.

From wandering and the pain of loneliness
The Good Shepherd consoles.
Into everlasting love and joy
The Good Shepherd enrolls.

You call us friend
Though Creator God.
You call us brethren
Though Lord of All.

We bow,
We bend our knees,
We worship You:
The Good Shepherd of all.
