Biblical animal of excellence
Exemplifying meekness’ verity
The sheep champions benevolence-sweetness
Epitomized by Christ, “the Lamb of God*.”
Testifying about the good Shepherd**
Who leads toward abundant green pastures
Ushering near refreshing clear waters
The sheep*** is kept in His compassion’s care.
Midst confusion and distraction distress
The sheep, discerning well the Shepherd’s voice
Indeed follows, takes heed obediently
Safeguarded inside sheepfold’s warm haven.
Contributing much to the society
Sheep provides products like meat, dairy, wool
Granting great economic benefits
Along science and medicine support.
The sheep is wondrous creature, a precious gift
Functional; though once was sacrificial
My fave animal: to others, blessing
…I pray such would I be to my Shepherd.
*John 1:36 And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God!
**Psalm 23:1 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
***John10:11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
