HEAR THE CALL OF THE SHEPHERD'S VOICE

by Gloria Phifer

Gentle Shepherd
Watercolor by Gloria Phifer


           
Over the barren wasted hills
   High above the lofty, rocky crags
Through the winds and stormy gale
          Comes the call of the Shepherd's voice.

Low in the valley, so dark and deep
          Amid the crevices and hidden caves
Through the air so gray and mist
          Comes the call of the Shepherd's voice.

Upon the hills of lofty heights
          At morn, mid and dusk of day
Clear and still, the sound of love,
          Comes the call of the Shepherd's voice.

In the pastures of sin and shame
          Amid the grazing and searching within
To the lonely among the thorns
          Comes the call of the Shepherd's voice.

Turn from your wondering and going astray
          Come from your wilderness of shame
Follow the sound that rings in your soul
          Heed the call of the Shepherd's voice.

Enter His arms out stretched and opened wide
          Snuggle safe within.
Little lamb come home to God
          Come to the call of the Shepherd's voice.
