Jesus, Shepherd of Our Souls

Music by Ron Klusmeier
Words by Fred Kaan

Lyrics as Poetry

Jesus, Shepherd of our souls,
selfless in your caring,
lead us out to days of peace
and of thoughtful sharing.
Free our life from ill and war,
what is good in us restore.Jesus, be our Shepherd still,
though the settings alter;
give us for our changing days
faith that will not falter.
Bless us in our modern scene
of computer and machine.Christ, renew in us the charge
at your rising given:
that the Church in love should bring
to this earth your heaven.
Give us insight, show us how
life is here, the time is now.May we with a shepherd’s heart
love the people round us,
still recalling how your love
in our straying found us.
Point us to your caring ways,
guide us clearly all our days.
