Shepherd Song

Shepherd Song                                                        words and music by Michael Burke

  

All we like little sheep had gone so far astray

We closed our eyes, turned our heads and went our separate ways

Then the Shepherd of our souls came to take us home

He came to us and gave His love when we were so alone

 

Now there’s trouble in the flock

I heard someone holler wolf

He’s created quite a shock

But still the Shepherd’s in control

 

Now if you find you’re alone and you have lost your way

Call out for the Shepherd’s love before it is too late

For outside of the fold you’re weak and easy prey

The wolf desires to have your soul and take your life away

 

Now there’s trouble in the flock

I heard someone holler wolf

He’s created quite a shock

But still the Shepherd’s in control

 

Jesus is the Shepherd and the lover of my soul

He’s the One who rescued me

He’ll never let me go

I wanted to share these lyrics because sometimes the church puts too much emphasis on the pastor who is an imperfect human as we all are. There are many churches (flocks) but if the pastor is the shepherd there will be " trouble in the flock".

Jesus is the only Shepherd and we must keep our eyes on him.
