The Shepherd

Oh! docile cattle ruminating,
Thank your shepherd for your safety.
He gives you food, he keeps you healthy,
He also ensures that you have shelter.
Out of pure love he’s there to serve you,
How else to explain his dedication?
And in the night when he is home resting,
The butcher who comes and takes you,
Should clearly show without a question,
You need your shepherd to protect you.
