The Shepherd’s Charge
The shepherd walks before his flock
To lead them safely home;
He guides them through the treacherous spots,
Retrieves them when they roam.
He shields them from both wolf and thief,
By name he knows each sheep;
He loves them and would give his life
His charge to safely keep.
Thus Jesus walks before His own
To lead them all the way;
He guides them through the storms of life,
And seeks them when they stray.
He helps them o’er the rugged paths,
By name He knows them all;
He gave His life on Calvary’s cross-
That they might never fall!
