Sheep May Safely Graze

“A Lovely Pastoral Scene”

Good Sabbath Morning!

With a Sabbath Reflection!

The month of March celebrates the great composer, Johann Sebastian Bach’s
birthday, born in 1685. One of his musical compositions is often played in
weddings and celebrations –

“Sheep may safely graze and pasture

In a watchful shepherd’s sight

Those who rule with wisdom guiding

Bring to hearts a peace abiding

Blessing a land with joy made bright.”

And I would like to share a story I have written, inspired by love and care
for lost little lambs in our world of dangers and snares –

a lost
“We seem to stray from the fold of safety, but upon
His lambs there is ever a Watchful Eye”

Wandering in an arid land

Far from the flock

Timid and shy a lost lamb unable

To find its way from danger back

The ravine between

Deep and confining

Its cry bleating then slowly fainting

The sheep in safety still abiding

Following their shepherd

Wherever he leads them

Upon a midnight’s sleep

Awakening, counting his sheep

Venturing into the night

For one was missing

Oh, children upon earth

Like wandering lambs

Searching for a Shepherd

In a land of danger, suffering the

Hand that harms them

His rod and staff

Securely leads them

Their bruises and hurts, their minds

And hearts with oils he soothes them

Smoothing their paths

Spreading a table before them

In the valley of death they do not fear

For in the house of their

Lord there is no despair

A room to hold them in that great

Mansion He has prepared

Dwelling forever!

“The rod and staff leads them”
