Love of the Shepherd

  1. 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

    I ask you is it okay if I share this to others?
