Thus says the Lord God:

I will set up one shepherd over my people.

      Our shepherd will feed us and lead us in God’s ways.           

   Thus says the Lord God:  I will save my flock.

     God’s flock shall no longer be ravaged. The Shepherd

shall judge between the sheep and the goats.

Thus says the Lord God: I, the Lord, will be their God!

  And my servant shall be prince among them.

   I, the Lord, have spoken.

Come and worship the shepherd who is king.

We come to worship and bow down to the shepherd.
