The Love of the Shepherd

Wolves were howling at the door of the fold
And the shepherd knew it could never hold
It needed repairs and the gate was weak
But he had promised to save his sheep

His father had told him what he must do
To strengthen the fold and make it new
Whatever the cost, it must be paid
A new cornerstone would have to be laid

The wolves had gathered once more at the gate
Stepping outside he did not hesitate
And the shepherd knew just what must be done
The wolves were given the life of the son

Covered with blood they threatened no more
Leaving his grave he had strengthened the door
And because the shepherd had kept his vow
All who enter are safe even now

Written April 2004. Given by the Spirit to be shared with all but claimed by none. All praise and glory belongs to Him.

Words fail me, this is wonderful! I love how it's kinda like a metaphor. Beautiful! It's so amazing how God uses us to spread His story!
