Oh, what music in the Shepherd's ear!
(From Octavius Winslow's "Green Pastures")
From His own infinite and boundless sufficiency,
the Shepherd supplies all the needs of His flock.
Christian, you have....
not a sin His grace cannot pardon;
not a corruption it cannot subdue;
not an infirmity it cannot help;
not a burden it cannot sustain;
not a sorrow it cannot soothe;
not a difficulty it cannot surmount.
Oh, what music in the Shepherd's ear is the
feeble bleat of the lamb, or the plaintive cry of
the sheep, appealing in times of sorrow, danger,
and need; to His sympathy, power, and protection!
