THE GOOD SHEPHERD
By Ken Blue
The Good Shepherd goes before;
Preparing every day.
In new life, His sheep now walk.
He is the living Way.
The Good Shepherd gently leads;
They follow in His fold.
Safely held by His hands;
Protected from their foes.
The Good Shepherd is the door;
To lifes abundant fields.
They lie down by still waters;
At night they fear no ill.
The Good Shepherd knows His sheep;
He counts them every day.
He knows each one by their name;
He has lost none, they say.
The Good Shepherd gave His life;
He died for each ones sake;
Placed Himself between sins’ wrath,
And the life sin would take.
The Good Shepherd comes again;
Like a thief at midnight.
Who, is now the Great Shepherd,
Is Chief when faith is sight!
