A work in progress....

I'm still revising this one; bear with me.
_____________________________

See the sparrow fall from the sky,
As the flocks graze in the feilds.
The shepherd watches the sparrow,
On green pastures over the hills.

If the shepherd watches the sparrow,
Watches he not o'er his sheep?
As a father watches his children,
The shepherd his flocks will keep.

See the shepherd pick up the sparrow;
Gently cradles it in his arm.
And the shepherd carries the sparrow;
Carries it in his heart.

If the shepher carries the sparrow,
Carries he not his sheep?
As a father carries his children,
The shepherd his flocks will keep.

See the shepherd care for the sparrow;
Carefully mend its broken wings.
And his heart bleeds for his young one,
As softly his song he sings.

If the shepherd cares for the sparrow,
Cares he not more for his sheep?
As a father cares for his children,
The shepherd his flocks will keep.

See the shepherd, he loves the sparrow;
His compassion will never be swayed.
His devotion is always unswerving;
His great mercy never strays.

If the shepherd loves the sparrow,
Loves he not more his sheep?
As a father loves his children,
The shepherd his flocks will keep.

See the shepherd frees his sparrow,
Its bondage to pain is no more.
And stead'ly it follows its shepherd;
The sparrow on eagle's wings soars.

If the shepherd frees the sparrow,
Frees he not enslaved sheep?
In freedom sin's bondage is over;
Our shepherd he will us keep.
