The Good Shepherd
by Mary Stephens

Psalm 23:1 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
he leadeth me beside the still waters.

 

A silent pool, a deep refreshing draught,
The purest water from the purest Rock -
These shall be yours,
Oh, thirsty flock of Jesus.

 

A pasture green of richest grass so rare,
That all abide in satisfaction there -
This shall be thine,
Oh, hungering sheep of Jesus.

 

A quiet resting place, a cool retreat,
A shield and shadow from the burning heat -
These shall be yours,
Oh, weary flock of Jesus.

 

A strong Deliverer, a faithful Guide,
A tower of refuge, a wall on every side -
These shall be thine,
Oh, fearful sheep of Jesus.

 

A Shepherd kind, a Friend forever true,
A gentle touch, a comforting word to you -
These shall be yours,
Oh, suffering flock of Jesus.

 

A warm embrace, a folding safe within,
A place called home, sweet fellowship and kin -
These shall be thine,
Oh, lonely sheep of Jesus.

 

John 10:11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep...
14 I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.
