They all follow meekly after,
To meadows green and pastures deep,
In the footsteps of their master.
At times the pastures turn to dust,
The hardened ground is sparse and bare,
Their faithful minder has their trust,
They know for sure he’ll get them there.
In heat and cold he watches them,
Through seasons friendly and hostile,
He looks on them as one with him,
He shares with them through every trial.
Onward he leads to waters still,
A place of peaceful rest and calm,
They quench their thirst, they drink their fill
In quiet comfort safe from harm.
When little helpless lambs are born,
With tender care he nurses them
Through sleepless nights to frosty morn;
They always can rely on him.
From fearsome wolf and roaring lion
The faithful shepherd guards his own;
He’d lay his life upon the line
That they might all come safely home.
Christ Jesus used the shepherd’s role
To illustrate His heart of love---
The Lord and Shepherd of our souls
Would always lead, He never drove.
