Wednesday Riff: Searching

For thus says the Lord GOD: I myself will search for my sheep, and will seek them out.
I won’t stay at a distance. I will come out into the world I made. Whatever the circumstances, whatever the weather.
For thus says the Lord GOD: I myself will search for my sheep, and will seek them out.
I will get my hands dirty; I’ll search high and low. I won’t leave my sheep abandoned and lost.
I will risk everything to find and feed them, even if it should cost me dearly. I will spend all my energy, all my time.
For thus says the Lord GOD: I myself will search for my sheep, and will seek them out.
Even if it takes me to death itself. I will cross that threshold, lay down my life, and surrender everything.
My sheep are precious to me, it breaks my heart to see them wandering and lost, without a shepherd.
For thus says the Lord GOD: I myself will search for my sheep, and will seek them out.
I know them all by name, and will continue searching for them. To show them I care, to show them I understand, to show them I am on their side. I love them.
For thus says the Lord GOD: I myself will search for my sheep, and will seek them out.
