My Journey to God

Our Shepherd

You came as our shepherd
When you answered God’s call.
You came with the Truth,
And you loved one and all.

You pondered the mystery
Of God’s love for us.
Then, like the Good Shepherd,
You taught us to love.

You helped us to believe
In God’s plan for us,
That we are His children,
Called to Truth and Love.
