Shepherd of Our Souls


Return, O faithless children, 
I will heal your faithlessness. 
“Here we come to you; 
for you are the Lord our God."
Jeremiah 3:22

I was straying when Christ found me
in the night so dark and cold;
tenderly his arm went round me,
and he bore me to his fold.

Precious hiding place,
in the shelter of his love;
not a doubt or fear,
since my Lord is near,
and I’m sheltered in his love.

With his nail-scarred hand he brought me
to the shelter of his love;
of his grace and will he taught me,
And of heavenly rest above.

Tho’ the night be dark around me,
I am safe, for he is near;
never shall my foes confound me,
while the Savior’s voice I hear.

Precious hiding place,
in the shelter of his love;
not a doubt or fear,
since my Lord is near,
and I’m sheltered in his love.

You were going astray like sheep, but now you have returned to the shepherd and guardian of your souls.
 1 Peter 2:25
Prayer after thinking about today's devotion:
I return to you, O God, in need of mercy and guidance. Forgive my sins and guide me in the way I should go.

After your own thanksgivings & petitions, close with the Lord's Prayer.
