My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any one pluck them out of my hand. – Jesus – (Joh 10:27-28)
My mind wanders, Lord. Bring me back to you.
Like a sheep in the wilderness, my heart wants to stray.
The grass looks tasty there, but you know what I need.
Lead me and keep me on your fruitful ground. Pull from my food the weeds that poison my thinking, my moods, and my heart.
Restore my hope, my joy and the love you have shown me.
Show me your tender mercies and sing to me your song.
I crave the sound of your voice and covet your ways.
Lord, lead me, my Shepherd.
