The Shepherd’s Call

by Jason Kirk Bartley

Do you hear Jesus’s voice?
Does He know your name?
Do you know His Word is so true?
Or is it Him you often blame?
Have you asked Him for your new start?
Does His wisdom and truth abound in you,
do you often impart?
Or do you go it alone,
without a Word to say,
to your blessed Savior,
who knows the narrow way?
Jesus came to set us free,
not to let us go astray,
walking in His Word,
walking in His way.
He came to show the world,
how righteousness could be,
tucked within each heart,
He died upon the tree.
You do not have to wallow in this death of sin,
but let your Savior cleanse you,
let your Savior in,
Walk worthy of His call,
sometimes forsaking all.
In the name of God,
we charge forward every day,
not for man’s applaud,
but to do it in God’s own way.
As you trust His Word,
the enemy cannot stand,
his seconds ticking away.
His defeat at hand.
Safe within Jesus’s arms.
Secure with His mighty touch.
Jesus Christ is Lord,
and He loves us so very much.
You will not stumble.
You will not fall.
Jesus knows where He is going,
follow the Shepherd’s call.
