shepherd song

The idea for this song came out of a conversation I had with another ACSD staff member. We were talking about how ultimately the change we want to see in our students needs to happen in their hearts. Yes, it's good to train them in right actions and help them to make good choices, but if we desire to see them become true followers of Jesus, it has to be something that happens within them. My hope is that the words of this song can be a prayer for each of us, a way for us to intercede for the children under our care and to be reminded that we ourselves are also children under the care of our Good Shepherd.

SHEPHERD SONG (click the video above to watch/listen) words and music by Carrie Warner

Shepherd their hearts, God

Watch over them all

The weak and the frail ones

The big and the small

For those that are breaking

Lord what can we do But bring them to Jesus

The Shepherd that's true

Oh Jesus be their Guide

The One they depend on

The One by their side

Don't leave them on their own

Their hearts need a shepherd

To carry them home

Shepherd their minds God

The thoughts deep inside

The ones that they speak of

And those that they hide

Their minds are like gardens

Where so much can grow

Plant seeds of Your truth there

That they'll deeply know

Oh Jesus be their Guide

The One they depend on

The One by their side

Don't leave them on their own

Their minds need a shepherd

To carry them home

You alone can see inside

You alone are there

Holding outstretched arms

If they could see how much You care

Would they run to You?

Would they cry to You?

Would You wipe away their tears?

Singing over them

With Your perfect love

That can drive out all their fears

As we look to You

We remember that

Our own hearts are needy too

We are all like sheep

Who have gone astray

Every one of us can pray ...

Shepherd our hearts, God

We cry out to You

We all need a shepherd

To carry us through

From glory to glory

You're changing us all

With grace beyond measure

On which we now fall

Oh Jesus be our Guide

The One we depend on

The One by our side

Don't leave us on our own

We all need a shepherd

To carry us home

Lord You are our Shepherd

You are our home

So true… the change has to start in our hearts! What a wonderful spirit-filled song. ‘Our Shepherd’ has kind of been a theme for my sisters and I the last couple months. Thank you for this blog ministry, Carrie!
