Shepherd the Flock

I exhort the elders,
To witness sufferings;
Of all the defenders,
That you are wondering.

Being a partaker,
In glory as revealed;
About our Maker,
That has been now unsealed.

Shepherd the flock of God,
Taking the oversight;
Not to stray become flawed,
Remaining in the light.

Not under compulsion,
And not by constraint;
All without convulsion,
Argument nor complaint.

Never for shameful gain,
Never domineering;
Never to induce pain,
To cause any fearing.

A shepherd to the flock,
To be an example;
What you do how you talk;
Godly to the people.

The chief Shepherd appears,
Giving the sacred crown;
To the one that reveres,
When our Lord comes down.

So, you who are younger,
Be subject to seniors;
Never be a monger,
Respect higher tenures.

Clothe with humility,
Between one another;
Humbled ability,
Respecting each other.

For God opposes pride,
Being humble gives grace;
Remember why Christ died,
And revived to embrace.

Be sober and aware,
Of Satan as your foe;
Watch out for any snare,
For causing sin to flow.
