TENDING MY FATHER’S SHEEP (Song Lyrics)

Shepherd Boy.jpg

Just a humble shepherd boy
Daily tending my father’s sheep
Roaming through the hills unseen
Eyes upon them, awake, asleep

Chorus
Wither will they go
Wither will they stay
Wither will their food come from
Wither will they play
Oft awandering from me
Oft close by my feet
Doesn’t matter either way
I love them, love their bleat

Searching for lush, green pastures
Waters flowing abundantly
And hanging leaves for shelter
Safe from winds that lash suddenly

Chorus
Wither will they go
Wither will they stay
Wither will their food come from
Wither will they play
Oft awandering from me
Oft close by my feet
Doesn’t matter either way
I love them, love their bleat

Watching for dangers and fear
Aware of their frailty, weakness
Needing me to lead them, till
The heavens draw back in darkness

Oh! Why did He chose me
And why not another
I’d strayed so far from home
Far from father, mother
But in His sweetest arms
Carried me to His side
Held me so tenderly
Whispered, here you’ll abide

Chorus
Wither will they go
Wither will they stay
Wither will their food come from
Wither will they play
Oft awandering from me
Oft close by my feet
Doesn’t matter either way
I love them, love their bleat
