GENTLE SHEPHERD

gentle shepherd come and lead us We Need You

gentle shepherd come and lead us

by Bill and Gloria Gaither

In this worship series, we are looking at what worship is and what it is not. Specifically, we are focusing on the characteristics of God and His only son, Jesus. Today’s characteristic focus is on gentleness. The key scripture is Ps. 23:1-3, listed below. The lyrics are also found below that. God is gentle and Jesus, our great Leader, definitely showed gentleness in His leading of His disciples.


1 – The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.

2 – He makes me lie down in green pastures;

He leads me beside still waters;

3 – He restores my soul.

He leads me in right paths

for His name’s sake.

The words to the song, by Bill and Gloria Gaither reflect this gentleness from Jesus. May we reflect his gentleness in our worship and in our daily lives. Now do we want all gentleness and quiet reflection the whole service? No, that would be out of balance, but there is a time in worship to be quiet and to encourage gentleness

Gentle Shepherd come and lead us
For we need you to help us find our way
Gentle Shepherd come and feed us
For we need your strength from day to day

There’s no other we can turn to
Who can help us face another day

Gentle Shepherd come and lead us
For we need to you to help us find our way
