And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.
Following the Shepherd
As a little lamb is guided, so must you be,
Just as it follows the one ahead, you must learn to follow me.
The little lamb does not question where it is led,
He trusts the one that walks on ahead.
He does not tarry, grumble or complain;
On the path he remains.
This little lamb walks ahead in faith,
He does not worry or hesitate.
He does not try to show the shepherd a better way ahead.
He continues on without fear or dread.
Like this, my chosen ought to be.
You must trust as you follow after me.
I am the Good Shepherd of your soul.
Allow me to have full control.
I will carry you through the hard place,
Confidently you can rest in my embrace.
God’s sheep rejoice as they hear His loving call to come,
And follow in the footsteps of Jesus God’s Son.
