Wrote this a few years ago, thought I would share it…
I am, a little lost lamb..
Alas, I am the lamb, you spoke of…..
the one continually drifting wayward.
I am the one, for whom you faithfully leave the herd.
You leave them all to find this lamb,
and guide me home, by your hand.
Yes I am the lamb you spoke of…
The one who always goes astray
A little lamb foolish and small, determined to go her own way.
Tho the shepherd may break my legs to confine
His embrace restores me every time.
Again, i am the lamb you spoke of….
For once again I find myself lost,
lured just like a child, I have wandered far off.
I am caught in a trap set just for me.
“I am just a little lost lamb”, I say as I weep.
THEN IN THE DISTANCE UPON THE HORIZON
I RECOGNIZE MY SHEPHERD SWIFTLY ARRIVING!
Softly he says
“tho you’ve gone astray,
Just turn to me, I’ll lead the way
Little lost lamb, a small task i give you
Just follow behind me, do as i do.
Submit to me, you’re servant I’m master
Trust that I won’t lead you to the slaughter.
Trust me because YOU ARE MY OWN
I am your faithful one, I AM YOUR HOME
ignore the world, ignore religion
Trust I’m the beginning and the ending.
And when when you feel like I am distant
because we have been walking silent…
Hold tight to my words, PRESS ON!
Walk where I walk, my precious one.
Do not move to the right or the left,
for I alone know where to step.
If I don’t look, don’t look that way,
Only say the things I say.
Follow me little lamb, draw near
Do as I do, and have no fear.
Little Lamb, I am your shepherd
I WILL PROVIDE, I AM YOUR PROTECTOR!
Now when you come across lost sheep
You above all else must tell of me.
Tell of my love, tell of my freedom
Proclaim the forgiveness found in Jesus!”
I am the little Lamb you spoke of
unable to survive on her own.
easily lost, yet easily found and brought home
Happy am I to be this little lamb
For this little one, has the greatest shepherd in all the land.
I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for his sheep
I am the Good shepherd. I know my own and my sheep know me.
