I appeal to your elders,
And the spiritual leaders;
In faith you are the builders,
For the sheep be the feeders.
 
For so many it was sealed,
Of glory that will be shared;
Suffering that is revealed,
How much Christ really cared.
 
It is more than merely talk,
God has entrusted to you;
Be shepherds over the flock,
Feed them all of which is true.
 
Watch over them just like God,
Not to do because you must;
Rather care for when be flawed;
Help them to regain their trust.
 
Do not do it out of greed,
Rather as a desire;
In serving every seed,
Helping what they require.
 
Do not be lord over them,
God has entrusted in you;
He might decide to condemn,
What you are trying to do.
 
Be examples for the flock,
And then when Christ reappears;
You wear a crown as you walk,
As the tribulation nears.
 
So if you truly believe,
You will see it on that day;
A crown of glory receive,
That will never fade away.
