Dumb Sheep

Hear the Word of the Lord,
And do not fall asleep;
Being a good shepherd,
Must take care of His sheep.

For the sheep became prey,
For many wild beast;
Sheep are dumb and could stray,
That would become their feast.

No shepherd has been there,
Only a hired hand;
Who did not really care,
Sleeping was in demand.

He did not search for sheep,
That had wandered away;
Because he did not keep,
Watch upon as to stray.

Shepherds must hear the Word,
As the Lord has spoken;
Attentive what is heard,
Remaining unbroken.

He will require sheep,
Continue to be fed;
And not to fall asleep,
That they not become dead.

The shepherds no longer,
Having a lamb to eat;
It makes them not stronger,
For standing on their feet.

The Lord will seek them out,
Where the sheep might have gone;
And go searching about,
Proceed from dusk to dawn.

The shepherd seeks his flock,
That scattered in the land;
He continues to walk,
Each one to find at hand.

For the shepherd is good,
Not to lose anyone;
A watchful eye that would,
Until their time is done.
