The Good Shepherd Stands Watch (Inspirational poetry)

Updated on January 23, 2015
The good shepherd is always there for us each...
The good shepherd is always there for us each...
As the warming sun bathes the morning's earth ...the shepherd stands, guarding us all...
As the warming sun bathes the morning's earth ...the shepherd stands, guarding us all...
Ever vigilant and on guard against all evil...
Ever vigilant and on guard against all evil...
Our father cares for us all...
Our father cares for us all...
His radiance at the dawn...
His radiance at the dawn...


As the sun's warming rays bathes the morning's dew, all aglow,

The good shepherd stands guard before his flock, down below.

With his Watchful eyes, guiding hands, this, as the steward shows,

His loving care and that of his great concern, by the hour, grows.


His sheep to feel his strong presence, all to feed in contentment,

This kingly child, and of a nature so mild, yet strong in his intent.

Beware the wolf or wildest of hounds, are to threaten any sheep,

A mighty protector, is the lord, and this as his vow, to keep.


Should a sheep or any little one, to be lost, or to run astray,

The master searches for everyone, helps them find their way.

He returns the missing, to the flock, to watch them eat and play,

With his care, his little ones, grow up safe, so secure, each day.


The shepherd, as a champion, tirelessly to stand before his band,

His guidance and patience, without limits, shown by his gentle hand.

His flock, his members, flourish before him, as with his holy embrace,

The radiance seen by his wonderful smile, and that of his shining face.
