O Gatherer of Lambs, Come
Isaiah 40:11 God will feed the flock like a shepherd, gather the lambs in God’s arms,
carry them in God’s bosom, and gently lead those that are with young.
O Gatherer of Lambs, Come~
There are times when we sow seeds of service
and reap only exhaustion,
when we seek to follow your will and are thwarted,
when we encounter resistance at every turn.
We find ourselves bone-weary and
losing our enthusiasm,
our vision, and even our faith.
In those times and always,
gather us up in your gentle arms, hold us close, comfort us,
and restore peace to our souls.
Strengthen and refresh us by your embrace,
that we may once again
passionately and compassionately serve you.
