Scripture Verse

He shall feed His flock like a shepherd: He shall gather the lambs with His arm, and carry them in His bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young. Isaiah 40:11

If you know Bald­win’s full name, or where to get a good pho­to of her (head & shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els),


I am Je­sus’ lit­tle lamb,
He’ll wash me white as snow,
And to the place where He has gone,
He’ll sure­ly let me go.


Keep me, Je­sus, while I sleep,
And guide me through the day,
For while I sleep I can­not sin,
But when I wake, I may.

Lead me to the wa­ters still,
And through the pas­tures green,
But in the way of vice and sin,
O let me ne’er be seen.


Teach me how to pa­tient be,
Let love with­in me stay,
That I may help to bring to Thee
The lit­tle lambs that stray.


Christ the Shepherd
