Pastors are supposed to be the shepherds
A willing flock has bid to guide their souls.
So must you be yourself a lamb of courage,
The one most lost amid the moral wreckage
Of Adam's sin, whose grief must be the fold's.
Remember we are all but broken potsherds,
Sustained alone by faith in some great whole.
