I ask the spiritual leaders,
And remember be the feeders;
To the entire flock of sheep,
Remain vigilant and not sleep.
Be a witness for Jesus Christ,
Sufferings being sacrificed;
And when the book has been unsealed,
Share glory that will be revealed.
Be the shepherds over the flock,
And vigilant around the clock;
For God has entrusted in you,
Knowledgeable of what is true.
Watch over them just as the Lord,
Do not let any be ignored;
Do not do this because you must,
Rather wanting to earn His trust.
Do not do it wanting to greed,
But desire to serve a need;
You are not rulers of the flock,
Rather help when they need to talk.
Be a model for to follow,
An example they can echo;
Then when Jesus Christ reappears,
Blessed as everyone reveres.
You will get your golden crown,
Of glory with your pure white gown;
For it will never fade away,
And never on the path to stray.
