A Savior A Shepherd

Starting with the disciples
Christ walking as a man
the fire starting
by the Sea of Galilee

The fire burning
rising with the tide
as he walked the land
these fishermen by his side

Going through the land
preaching, healing in God’s name
offering hope to them all
sharing the love of God

Following the master’s plan
taking on our sin
dying in our place
that we may truly live

A Savior, a shepherd
those who were fisherman
following our master
doing all we can

Spreading the good news
of God’s endless grace
to the whole world
for the whole human race

on reading the start of the following poem
as I posted it to today
A Fisherman

A fisherman,
a carpenter
on these we built a church
ordinary men, like all the rest
called to serve the Lord
Out of their comfort zone
into the desert, the wilderness
out on the water
wherever they were called
No education, no standing or station
doing the work of the savior
standing in his place
Speaking truth to the powerful
going in his holy name
Spreading the love,
the word of God
down to our present age
