He Lives!

The Shepherd and the Lamb
by Charlotte

Be our guiding Shepherd,
As we seek to follow you.
Throughout this life of trials,
Where old paths lead to new.

The places you once traveled,
When you walked upon this earth.
To show us of God’s saving grace,
And bring to us rebirth.

The mount where you were tempted,
And the lone spot where you prayed.
Are places you now lead us through,
Where others fell or strayed.

The tomb we pass is opened,
The light is shining in.
Reminders of your life in us,
And the ransom for our sin.

We’ll follow through the pearly gate,
Then on to streets of gold.
To a city you have made for us,
That your covenant foretold.

You’ll lead us by the crystal pool,
As its water sparkles clear.
Living springs prepared by God,
For those you beckon near.

We’ll walk along the river,
That leads us to the place.
Where God himself will be our light,
And we will see His face.

Then no more tears, no suffering,
When our eyes behold the throne,
As you take your holy place-The Lamb
Surrounded by your own.

“For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd;
He will lead them to springs of living water.
And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”

Revelations 7:17
