Shepherd me O God



"Shepherd me, O God, beyond my wants, beyond my fears..."

The idea of Jesus as the Good Shepherd works at so many levels. A shepherd guides the sheep, nurses them back to health, rescues them, searches for them when they are lost,carries them, leads them to rich pastures, watches over them in vigil and ultimately lays down his life for them.

So, this is for anyone who needs some shepherding.

  1. Yes, I think we have lost the cultural nuance of the term. I seem to remember hearing shepherds were lowly outcasts in Palastinian society. Which again adds something to the image as Christ the Good Shepherd...

  2. Thanks for the music, I have been looking for some new Christian music and found the album on itunes. Good to find a new singer. And the idea of being shepherded in the sense of being watched over and healed is so emotive.
