Shepherd of Israel, Come
Psalm 80:1 Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel, you who lead Joseph like a flock!
O Shepherd of Israel, Come~
As you were to your people in ancient times,
be our Shepherd today as well.
Lead us beside the still waters in this time
of busyness, of chaos,
Lead us from our lostness
back into the place of your tender embrace.
May we trust your goodness and mercy
to follow us, to accompany us
every step of the way.
Bring us to know peace and rest,
to know your goodness and mercy,
that we might dwell in your heart of love
now and forevermore.
