As this day is long
may you know the shepherds love;

as dark as the night might be
may you know the shepherds presence;

as green as the shepherds pastures are
may you know the abundance of life;

as deep as the valley of death goes down
may you know the place resurrection is met;

as still as the pools are of quiet water
may you know the depth of the shepherd’s peace;

as overflowing as the table is of the heavenly banquet
may your enemies know the fullness of God’s promises;

and as sure as the mercy that follows you every day of your life
may you dwell in the house of the Lord forever

Go in peace

I AM the good shepherd
(the one who tends us,
guides us into pastures,
who recognises the sounds of our names).

I AM the good shepherd
(the one who bends to heal us
travels through the deepest valleys with us
who give up everything for us all).

I AM the good shepherd
(the one whose rod and staff comfort us
whose strength and love holds us
whose cup of love runneth over).

I AM the good shepherd
and we will dwell
in the house of the Lord
forever

Let us gather here
God’s People
in God’s love
for God’s world
 

I AM the Good Shepherd
