Just a Shepherd Boy
To be used as an intro to reading Psalm 19
Just a shepherd boy, sitting by the fire at night
As embers brightly glow.
Looking to the sky, wonderin' why
The stars spread far and wide.
Just a shepherd boy, stirring as the daybreak comes
Sees rising sun, above the hills.
Watching thru the day, as champion sun
Makes its run across the sky.
Searing, soaring high, warms his face
Then takes its place
Shepherd boy asks why.
Shepherd boy goes by.
Just a shepherd boy, who's seen God
Through his night and day.
Who's paused to wonder and to pray.
Just a shepherd boy, who hears God
Through his loving law
And wants to please him more.
..Make me a shepherd boy.
