The Shepherd’s Charge

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!
