Hear the Word of the Lord,

And do not fall asleep;

Being a good shepherd,

Must take care of His sheep.

 

For the sheep became prey,

For many wild beast;

Sheep are dumb and could stray,

That would become their feast.

 

No shepherd has been there,

Only a hired hand;

Who did not really care,

Sleeping was in demand.

 

He did not search for sheep,

That had wandered away;

Because he did not keep,

Watch upon as to stray.

 

Shepherds must hear the Word,

As the Lord has spoken;

Attentive what is heard,

Remaining unbroken.

 

He will require sheep,

Continue to be fed;

And not to fall asleep,

That they not become dead.

 

The shepherds no longer,

Having a lamb to eat;

It makes them not stronger,

For standing on their feet.

 

The Lord will seek them out,

Where the sheep might have gone;

And go searching about,

Proceed from dusk to dawn.

 

The shepherd seeks his flock,

That scattered in the land;

He continues to walk,

Each one to find at hand.

 

For the shepherd is good,

Not to lose anyone;

A watchful eye that would,

Until their time is done.
