Send them shepherds – v2

Open your hearts,
your closed purse strings;
open your eyes.
Your sisters, brothers hurting
needing the joy,
the help of our Savior.
They are lost in the world
other sheep
of the one shepherd.

Send them shepherds
to reach the other sheep
to gather in the last
into the keep.
Offer your witness
the wealth God has given;
Give to the ministry
to heal more sheep
to bring more into pasture.
