Poetry: The Shepherd’s Prayer

The sheep have come and fed,
the shepherds have put their lambs to bed,
break out the bread and wine,
it is time for the shepherds to dine.
Call forth the flute and the lyre,
and sing song of praise by the fire.
Look to the heaven’s and declare,
to the Creator of this I send one prayer,
take this heart and make it Thine,
give Your Heart and make it Mine.
