But a Simple Shepherd: A Christmas Poem


Recommended Posts

But a simple shepherd,
Leading my sheep o'er barren hills toward town.
Who could have known how life would change
When the angels above shone down?

 

But a simple shepherd,
Listening as the angels did entreat.
I made my way toward old Bethlehem,
A young family there to greet.

 

But a simple shepherd, I peered into the stable,
Come to see a little babe, lain 'tween horse and sheep.
Who could have known how the world would change
By this babe so fast asleep?

 

But a simple shepherd,
Ne'er one to open mouth to preach.
How could I not go with news of the babe
Out into the world, every soul needed to reach?

 

But a simple shepherd,
Staff and flock now long stored;
Tending a new multitude of believers,
Daily telling the world of that baby, now my Savior, the Lord.
