Christian Shepherds

Just as shepherds watch their sheep,
Jesus Christ will never sleep;
Watching all placed in His care,
As ruler God to declare.

Willingly does it to please God,
Of one accord giving laud;
Christ never shows disrespect,
The Father's will not reject.

It is not because He must,
Rather because of His trust;
With a desire to please,
And putting His mind at ease.

It should be for us the same,
To be able to proclaim;
Remaining humble not proud,
That makes you boastful and loud.

God makes you complete and strong,
For endurance to prolong;
If you let Him have control,
He gives an eternal soul.
