There is a need for shepherdsAuthor: Mary Nelson Keithahn (1992)
Tune: SHEPHERDS TODAY
Published in 1 hymnal
There is a need for shepherds in this place,
where pain and suffering wear a human face;
where hungry children stand outside the door,
and homeless families long for home once more.
There is a need for shepherds in this hour.
There is a need for Love to show its power!
There is a need for shepherds on this street,
where lonely strangers pass and do not meet;
where hopeless people wander in the night,
and wonder why life never turns out right.
There is a need for shepherds on this earth,
where young and old have lost their sense of worth;
where guilty people seek to place the blame
on others for their failures and their shame.
There is a need for shepherds everywhere.
We who have strayed like sheep must learn to care.
We who have known the Shepherd's love today
must shepherd one another in God's Way.
