Good and Faithful Shepherd


Based on Psalm 23 and John 10:1–33

See the sheep with their shepherd
How he’s guiding their way
Through the hills and the valleys
How he’s keeping them safe
When the day turns to evening
He will make them lie down
Then he waits and he watches
They can sleep safe and sound

We have a good and faithful Shepherd too
Jesus, the One who calls to me and you
If we listen to His voice and follow where He leads
We’ll come to know He’s all we’ll ever need

At dawn the shepherd will call them
He knows the names of each one
They trust his voice when they hear it
And they eagerly come
If they happen to wander
Slip away all alone
He will look till he finds them
He will bring them back home

We’ve all strayed like the lost sheep
In the valley of sin
Disobeyed God’s commandments
Run away from our King
But Jesus gave up His glory
To seek and rescue the lost
To bring us back to His Father
He gave His life on the cross
