GENTLE SHEPHERD

by CharlesRobey

Gentle Shepherd, laying in soft meadows of green

Gentle Shepherd, tasting of earths sweet cuisine
Gentle Shepherd, drinking fresh cool waters serene
Gentle Shepherd, shunting evils utmost demean
Gentle Shepherd, from clouds the gospel to glean
Gentle Shepherd, accepting a God as yet unseen
Gentle Shepherd, by faiths grace we now careen
Gentle Shepherd, a man who after God's own heart
Gentle Shepherd, from God never more will he part
Gentle Shepherd, from sin we are now made clean
Gentle Shepherd, forever in Glory one day to convene
Gentle Shepherd, worshiping praising Heavens serene
Gentle Shepherd, enjoying all the congregations routine

“Like a shepherd he will shepherd his own drove. With his arm he will collect together the lambs; and in his bosom he will carry them.” (Isaiah 40:11)

The Bible gives us a great many shepherds, beginning to end. (Genesis 4:2) (Revelation 12:5) Why shepherds, one might ask ?

King David was one such shepherd.(Psalm 78:70-72),
However, there was none like our "Gentle Shepherd, the Lord Jesus Christ (John10:2-4,11) (Isaiah 40:10-11) (Psalm 23:1-4)

Savior, like a shepherd lead us, much we need Thy tender care;
In Thy pleasant pastures feed us, for our use Thy folds prepare.
Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus! Thou hast bought us, Thine we are.
Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus! Thou hast bought us, Thine we are.
