The man I love accepted your call one day,
And there I was, confused and in dismay.
Is this the way you would have me go?
Please, Lord, do hurry to let me know.
So, here I am, a Shepherdess,
Hair combed, made up in my lovely dress.
But Lord, oh Lord, it’s hard, you see
Everyone is always looking at me.
My husband feels this immense pressure,
The expectations of others are a really tough measure.
The Shepherd and Shepherdess, our life story,
Lord, help us live to your glory.
Broken and bruised, a reed I am,
Sometimes my life feels like such a sham.
Jesus, when You were here, You promised me,
To give me life more abundantly.
What else is there for me to do
But fall on my knees and pray to you?
Thank you, Lord, for your big part,
In healing my aching and tired heart.
Help us, Lord, to work together,
Help us not be under the weather.
Give us strength and renewal each day,
And help us walk on the narrow way.
But above all, I ask just one more thing:
Help my spirit to soar and my heart to sing.
Joy and praise, on my lips a song,
May this be my treasure all my life long.
